When trying to launch Messages I get an "Internal Messages error:  There was a problem with Messages. You need to quit and open Messages again."  Messages won't launch ever since I restarted after the last Mountain Lion update to 10.8.2.  Any ideas how to fix this?

    I would start with Repairing Permissions  (Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities)



    Follow that with a PRAM reset.

    Shut down the computer.

    Restart it holding down Apple/CMD ( or ⌘)+ALT( ⌥)+P+R Keys until you have heard three Start Up Bongs.
