I had to wipe my hard drive, re-install Lion (not ML [I couldn't post specifically for Lion]) and then I restore my documents from my Time Machine Backup. I had two users, a diag user and my normal user, only my diag user was "recovered" from time machine, when looking into the Accounts Preference Pane, only the diag user showed up, but my normal user documents were actually in my hard drive, so from the diag user I created my normal user and used the home folder that already existed. Anyways, everything works, my background picture stayed the same, my desktop icons stayed arranged the way they are and it's all handy dandy, but my Spot Light Preference Pane and my Mac Mail program won't open :S


I get the following lines in the console after clearing the console and trying to open the Spot Light Preference Pane:

I went into /System/Library/PreferencePanes/ and Spotlight.prefPane IS there, so I dont' really know what's going on.


This is what I get after clearing the console and trying to open Mac Mail:
