    Default Activity Monitor is not working. PLEASE HELP!!!

    So at some point i deleted the Utilities menu from either my Dock or my Applications folder. I was able to restore it and everything in the Utilities menu works fine except for the Activity Monitor.

    I have a Utilities menu on my desk top that shows the Activity Monitor in the folder but when I open it, the pinwheel just rotates continuously and will not open. In the App folder I have the Utility menu WITH OUT Activity Monitor even present in the folder.

    I'm completely lost and in desperate need of some help on this issue.

    try this
    Try trashing the Preference file for it - com.apple.ActivityMonitor.plist

    located here;


    Also open disk utility and repair permissions on your disk. Also back up as you may need to re-install. I don't know for sure but sounds like it may be needed.
