...maybe the computer didn't restart correctly when I installed the trial?
Perhaps. Have you tried restarting again?
Your log shows OS 10.7.5. Does that include the OS 10.75 Supplemental Update? If not, try it. Also, Avid shows that the system software requirements for Pro Tools 10 and Pro Tools 10 HD is "Mac OS X 10.6.7 (Snow Leopard) through 10.7.4 (Lion)." So, perhaps the clich is with Pro Tools not being compatible with 10.7.5. Consider checking with Avid Support and their user forums.
...when I tried to open some other programs, including: iTunes, Garageband, iPhoto, and Software Update, it gave me the same message. A lot of my other programs still run just fine though.
Try logging in as a different User and see if all those applications work.

Ok, so I have deleted the Avid stuff, installed the supplemental update, restarted the computer, and then tried launching the apps as the admin. Unfortunately, nothing has changed :/ I really have no clue what's going on

The apps that you listed that do not work are all Apple apps. Those are probably built using their webkit. Your log show that your system is missing the webcore file and the path to it should be:
There could be other pertainent files missing but once crashed, you don't know. It could have happend after you updated to OS 10.7.5 but not known until the restart with the Avid Pro Tools installation. You could try (a) reinstalling the OS 10.7.5 combo update or (b) restore from a reliable backup clone (possibly pre-10.7.5) or (c) reinstall the OS.

I did the Combo update, and now it all works again! Yay! I have one more question though, will this problem reoccur if I try to get the Pro Tools trial again? Or should it work, now that I have the combo update? Thanks a bunch.

That's great news, Ryan!

Hmm...if you have a backup clone of your computer with the previous instance of OS 10.7.5, check to see if that backup has the webcore file. If the file is there, then it seems likely that the trial version of Avid Pro Tools 10 may not work. If you don't have a backup to check for that and the fact that Avid states compatibility only up to 10.7.4, then consider asking Avid Tech Support or post what happened in the Pro Tools Community Forum. Note: In that forum, there is an announcement from 10/2/2012 that Pro Tools 10.3.1 is now available. So, perhaps the trial version will get an update...
...Thanks a bunch.
You're welcome. Good luck.
