    Tapping this out on my iPhone.  Did time machine backup on one of the seagate drives.  Bought carbon copy Cloner and am making a backup on the other seagate now.

    I think I will try to do a clean reinstall of Lion using cmd-r

    on boot up and then copy my stuff from the back up if it resolves the issue.

     

    Does this sound like a plan or do you think I should go a different route ?

    Considering the variety of issues you have, and the presence of both a Time Machine and a cloned backup, I agree a clean reinstall of Lion is the way to go. Good luck.

    Back ups done.  Getting ready to reinstall.  Egad! 

    Keeping fingers crossed.  I'll let you know what happens.

     

    And thanks again for all of your recommendations!!!

    Again, good luck. Hope it works!

    Just finished reinstalling Lion.  Computer restarted and HALLELUJAH - everything works.  Safari is good and the drag and drop is back.  Interestingly, the reinstall did not delete anything from my computer.  All files, email, etc., intact.  I expected a blank slate but was pleasantly suprised.

     

    Anyway, wanted to let you know that the reinstall worked.  Can't thank you enough for all of your time and great advice.  If you every make it to Maine I owe you a lobster dinner!

    Good news indeed; glad to hear it worked out.

     

    So that solved your question? (Hint, hint)
