    It would help to give us more information about your computer. If you can, use EtreCheck to post a report. Etresoft: EtreCheck

     

    In the mean time:

    Boot into your recovery partition (restart, hold down ⌘R until you see the Apple logo), and use Disk Utility to repair your hard drive. Repair permissions too while you're there. OS X: About OS X Recovery

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:

     

    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

     

    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

     

    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.

     

    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select

    View Show Log List

    from the menu bar.

     

    Click the Clear Display icon in the toolbar. Then try the action that you're having trouble with again. Select any messages that appear in the Console window. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).

    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.

    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.

    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

    I am having the exact same problem as Zingaman

    I have a MBP Retina with OS X Mavericks

     

    In addition to all the above issues I use pixelmator and I can't save or export any files using Pixelmator

     

    Here is the console dump when I try to click on "Advanced" under "Security and Privacy" preferences

    Any ideas would be helpful.

    I have just tried Repair Disk in Recovery mode but there were no issues so it had nothing to repair

    I ran "repair disk permissions" but that has made no difference

     

    I just reinstalled OSX Mavericks from within OSX Mavericks but that hasn't helped either

     

    Anyone out there got any suggestions?
