    Recent problem with OS Lion

    Hi all
    Recently had a big problem with Lion. I had several apps running but physically not doing anything. Came back to the Mac & found most of the apps had locked up. Did a force quit to clear & then did a reboot.

    Thats when the problems started. Mac booted up but came up with "Windows Restore" options panel - either restore or not restore previous open window. The problem was I was unable to select either option to clear it from repeatedly flashing up.

    Tried rebooting, still came up. I even reinstalled Lion & it was still present after the boot. Unable to launch finder or clear message. I did manage to go into system prefs & disable "Restore Windows" on launch option under General System options, but still no good.

    The only solution was to reformat & reinstall OS & apps. Has anyone had a similar issue?

    Reinstalled all now & working fine, but I have disable the "Restore Windows" option just in case.

    Cheers for any replies.

    I don't think this is the correct place for such a question!

    This is for Installers or Patches only, as the name says, not for OS problems.

    Thanks

    I supouse you don't run "Time Machine" to backup yor drive then, the only way is restart the mac with a Disk Warrior bootable dvd and fix the errors, if this don't work, use a Drive Genius bootable dvd fix and defrag the drive, with this method you don't need reformat or reinstall nothing, all your files and apps. will be fine.
    By the way, remember "repair disk permissions" at least weekly.

    Please if you find useful this post, check thanks
