    System preference problem in Mac after Snow Leopard upgrade

    I updated my Mac to the Snow Leopard OS and now I am having issues with accessing the System Preferences. Whenever I try to open it gives the error message as “You cannot use this version of app System preference with this version of Mac OS X”. What does this means? Why I am getting this problem? Is there any fix for this problem? Kindly help.

    Re: System preference problem in Mac after Snow Leopard upgrade

    Hello Sir,

    I think that you are facing the current problem in to your device due to the fact that the operating system of your device needs to be updated properly on your device.

    So my suggestion to you is that first of all you simply have to update the OS of your device properly.

    Also your problem may be due to virus attack on your device or may be due to some interruptions in the settings of your device.

    So my suggestion to you is that you simply have to reset your device to the default point.

    You simply have to go to the menu from the home screen.

    After that you have to tap on the settings icon.

    After that navigate at the security settings.

    From there tap on the reset your device.

    Thank you.

    Hello Friend

    1.Insert your OS X.

    2.Then do a repair.

    3.If it does not work, put your school works to a external or an extension hard drive.

    4.And do a reformat and prefer an update.

    or

    Go to the Home then open up pictures.

    Create a sub folder for your i Photo library.

    And then restart and launch system preferences.

    Make sure you put your iPhone library in to the sub folder.

    Hi............,

    Actually your system preference is not updated.
    This is due to unsuccessful software update.
    So retry the updation of the software.
    Use fast net connection to update the software.

    ** Slow connection can make again such problem.
    ** Also after update have the antivirus in device.
    ** This will secure the device from all attacks.
    ** You can also try performing the disk repair.
    ** Disk need to be fragment soon.
    ** Have the space in the disk and then use apps.

    Thanks
