I am running os x Yosemite. I have 480 GB of available storage. Every application i use (except safari and text edit) is not working. For example, if I open Photo Booth, nothing happens. I press cmd+opt+esc and it says not responding. then i have to force quit. This happens with every other program. In audacity i can open it and record things. but if i save the project, i get a beach ball and i have to force quit. If i try to make a video call in Skype, same thing. All of these also happen with the adobesuite. No program will work. For some reason, the programs only work in safe boot. I tried verifying and repairing disk permissions. That did not work. I tried uninstalling everything program on my mac (except default programs). I even went as far as reinstalling os x all together. Not even that solved the problem. My mac had to be taken back to the store. They said nothing was wrong with it. What could be the problem. I don't think it's a hardware issue. Don't think it could be a software issue either because I reinstalled the entire os. So what could be the problem? I don't to us my computer in safe boot because my Wacom tablet will not work and the computer will be slow. Please give me a solution. This mac is the only computer I have and I need it to animate. Here are links to 2 videos so you can see the problem for yourself.

Create a new user account. Log into it and try the apps. Does the same thing happen?

Was you System-Reinstall a clean Installation? Possible you have bad fonts installed or your System-/ and User-Cache need a reorganisation. 

 

For test try following:

 

Search in

 

~/Library/Caches  (Library in your User-Account)

 

and remove (not delete!) the photobooth entries. Restart your mac and try if photobooth is running.

I don't see any Photo Booth entries: http://enoch23.deviantart.com/art/Screen-Shot-2015-02-27-at-3-42-25-PM-516883243?ga_submit_new=10%253A1425073933

Have you repair disk permissions in safe boot? If you're not done do that first.

Reset your NVRAM

Reset your SMC

For some reason, the programs only work in safe boot.
