Download Preference Manager (free) from Digital Rebellion and use it to trash your preferences - which are not removed during a normal uninstall/re-install.
It would also not hurt anything to use Disk Utility to repair your system disk permissions.

Here's a user tip on best practices for OS and FCP installs and upgrades
A clean install of OS and fcp is always recommended rather than upgrading an existing install. Yes, an upgrade will sometimes work, but...

Thanks... I just figured out how to do the repair disk, but unfortunately not solve my problem. So my next step is doing a clean install of my OS. I'm currently using Time Machine to backup my computer just in case I run into any issues. So I've never done this before and I'm not very computer savvy AT ALL. lol
So I want to make sure I understand things correctly before actually doing it. Essentially I will go to Disk Utility and erase the drive? I'm guessing then restart the computer? Will I be able to open up the App store to get my OSX10.8 reinstalled?

A strange thing happened to me as well. I have a brand new MacBook Pro Retina with OS 10.8.4
I reinstalled it because it didnt work well. Now everything runs smooth. But when I now try to install Final Cut 7 from my original disks it won´t let me do it. Itś just "greyed" out the option to install Final Cut.
Has Apple finally shut down the possibillity to use Final Cut Studio 7?
If so it will be Premiere from now on. The Final Cut X is not an option at all..

Best that you start a new post about this, but, try uninstalling FCS with this.
Then re install.
