Hello, I can fix this problem for you, but it would require me to remote into your computer and run a few commands via the terminal.

It will be an additional fee, but will allow me to login and fully address the issue and get your iphoto running properly.

Let's check some things before we begin:Click on the first icon in the Dock (the list of icons at the bottom of your screen) which is the “face” the "Finder", then click on Go at the top of the screen, you will see a drop down menu, go to Utilities. When that opens double click on the application called Disk Utility. When Disk Utility opens you will see your hard drive (usually Macintosh HD) on the left. Highlight your hard drive and on the right select the First Aid tab if it is not already selected, then click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Disk Permissions on the left.Note: If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Disk Permissions if it is not successful let me know.

There are unfortunately only two ways to fix this problem. 1. Reinstall OSX from scratch2. Enable root user from the Directory Utility, and then run this command via Terminal: sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force I can try to walk you through #2 in this chat, but it would be much easier for me to connect and do it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
