One minute I could use my iPhoto Library for my Screen Saver choice in System Preferences. Now it is not an option. Any advise?

    Hello, could it be this...

     

    Symptoms

    System Preferences may stop responding if you select an iPhoto Event that is no longer available in iPhoto as the source for your desktop picture.

     

    Resolution

        1.    Quit System Preferences if it's running.
 
 If System Preferences is running but not responding, choose Force Quit from the Apple menu, or right-click its icon on the Dock and choose "Force Quit".

        2.    Open iPhoto.

        3.    Select Events in the Source list (on the left side of the iPhoto window).

        4.    Double-click on any of the events shown. Verify that the name or date of this event is now shown under RECENT in the Source list.

        5.    Choose Apple menu () > System Preferences.

        6.    Click Desktop & Screen Saver, click on Desktop, and verify that you can now select a new desktop picture.
