good Day everybody

Last night, i tried to switch to Mail , but i get a message error that said that it crashes on start up , so i tried to switch to iCal but it wont start too, and even for garageband iMovie iphoto iWeb , iDVD . Any of them would start up. I get a message error of crash. So i look for the console to see what 's wrong. And today i entered the preference system to change screensaver option and when i click on "Desktop and screensavers" i got the message error "impossible to load desktop and screensaver preference tab".
