Replace Potentially Damaged Files

Conflicts due to damaged files can obviously be resolved by replacing the files with undamaged copies. To check this out:

  • Replace a control panel's preferences file. Some control panels have their own preferences files, located in the Preferences Folder. These files may get corrupted and need replacement. To do so, restart with the suspected control panel temporarily disabled. Then delete the potentially corrupted preferences file. The control panel will make a new one automatically, as needed.

  • Replace the startup extension or application or system software. Delete the problem startup extension (as described in the next section) and replace it with a fresh copy from your backups. Alternatively, if the problem only occurs when using a specific application, replace the application software to see if that helps. Some startup extension conflicts may be traced to corrupted System and/or Finder files; consider replacing them if all else has failed.
