Hi all, I'm new here but you may be able to help.

I am new to Mac as well but am learning fast on my 15" MBP.

An issue that I'm having is whenever I try to change the date and time settings from the clock (top right) I get the spinning ball and have to force quit. If I go through system pref then it works sometimes.

I have repaired permissions, verified disk and pram zapped (?) and nothing.

I messed around in the Library folders and deleted and renamed, and other things with the DateAndTime.prefPane but nothing worked.

What is the difference between HD:Library and HD:System:Library? Why do I need two libraries as well as the third in my main user folder?

Welcome to the forum, deadlyhifi.

That's a really odd problem. Is this the installation of OS X that came with your MBP or have you reinstalled it since you got it?

Also, what version of OS X are you running?
