    Your system is in a bad state.  With you showing hidden files, and probably modifying or deleting some of them, you've created a mess for yourself.  Your system is no longer in any state that Apple shipped it.  Frankly, you should back up your data and re-install the OS.

     

    And then quit tinkering as you are.  You're showing hidden files, then having no idea what they're for, and are creating all the problems that you're then asking us about.

    What kind of Mac is it? Do you know the Model Identifier or the Model number?

     

    When you reinstall, do you run it without installing anything else?

     

    Have you run the Hardware tests?

    Try answering the questions, that will be an excellent start.

    Anyway , i don't run it without installing anything else at the time . It's already in an bad state . The symptoms :

      

    Everything here : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5672

     

    It's all there .

    Then stop trying to install stuff until you know it runs fine.

     

    That is a description of a security update. It isn't a symptom of anything at all.

     

    Yes, I have "clean" installed the OS and the WiFi was on and it could identify the WiFi networks when booted. That's what it is supposed to do.

     

    You're not making any sense. The links you post have absolutely nothing to do with any problems you are having.

    Please stop spamming us. Are you just picking random article numbers and posting them?

    Absolutely impossible. There isn't a single bit of useful information in it. About the only thing someone could benefit from is that you are just here to troll the forums.

    Do you want to fix you Mac?

    If so, lets try something different.

     

    We'll ask you questions and suggest one thing to try each time.

    You report back with the results without editorializing or linking to anything. You just describe it in your own words.

     

    How about that?
