I searched the forum but I couldn't find a solution to my issue. I enter system preferences and click on desktop and screensaver. Once I do that system preferences freezes and I have to force quit out. Upon researching on the internet I found a suggestion to use the disk utility which I did. Didn't solve the problem. Another solution listed was to delete the com.apple.desktop.plist. I can't even find that file in my library to delete. I'm at a loss so any suggestions would be appreciated. Any help for fixing OS x 10.8 System Preferences Freezing?
