A MAC here (2yr old OSX) when logged in as the user freezes with only the cursor working immediately after you log in. Clicking does nothing and the keyboard appears to be dead.

We ran a permissions reset which briefly gave access to a folder and to launch In Design, then froze again, and back to the same behaviour after login.

Logging in as root seems to be unaffected.

Any ideas how we can fix this? Can I create another profile as root and copy settings over?
