    Quit System Preferences if it's running. In the Finder, hold down the option key and select Go Library from the menu bar. From the Library folder, delete the following item, if it exists:




    and move the following item to the Desktop:




    Launch System Preferences and test. If you still have the issue, put the item on the Desktop back where it came from and post again. Otherwise, delete the item.

    I have the same problem.


    I deleted caches/com.apple.systempreferences


    I can't find Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist

    there is only 1 called: com.apple.desktop.plist.lockfile

    and another one called com.apple.dock.plist.lockfile


    I copied both to the desktop without results. Still the same problem. (i've put them back now)


    It is very annoying. Any ideas?
