    Which documents did you delete?

     

     

    Disconnect all peripherals from your computer.

     

    Boot from your install disc & run Repair Disk from the utility menu. To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.

    Select your language.

    Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.

    Select Disk Utility.

     

    Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.

    Click Repair Disk.

    Restart your computer when done.

     

    Repair permissions after you reach the desktop-http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2963 and restart your computer.

    Use Software Update to update your os to 10.6.8 and anything else that needs to be updated.

    I couldn't delete anything actually, I just wanted to close the message it froze. And I tried with the dick and pressed C and NOTHING. It shows the home page with the sessions and when I go on one of it, there is just the apple wallpaper

    Try starting up in safe mode - Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode

     

     

     

     

    Press the Power Button and immediately press and hold down the Command  and the S keys as the machine starts up.  This boots you into Single-user mode and you should see white text appear on the screen.

    When you see the # Command prompt, type /sbin/fsck-fy and hit the Return.

    Now sit back & let your computer do its thing.  This should take approximately 15 minutes or so.  Depending on how messed up your computer is.  Just be patient.

     

    If and when you see the message File System was modified repeat the steps above again & again until you hopefully see the message "no problems were found."  When that happens type reboot and hit Return again.

     

    If these steps do not work then boot from your install disc to repair disk.  To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.

    Select your language.

    Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.

    Select Disk Utility.

     

    Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.

    Click Repair Disk.

     

     

    And I tried with the dick

    Typo?
