Some of the applications don't open, and the error massage is: ()

Recently, some of my macbook application, such as iPhoto, email, and some other app does not open up, or it opens but does not run and I need to "force quit" it.

The error massage I get is: "The last time you opened Mail, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again?"

But if I choose reopen, nothing will happen and I need to "force quit" it.

Would anybody please help me fix this issue, it's very annoying for some apple Apps, this kind of errors. I also downloaded the "Mountain Lion" and installed it again, to see if it helps, although I still get the same errors. I really appreciate it if you could please help.

Start up holding down the "R" key and run disk Utilities and let us know if that helps. Also go under the Apple in the upper left hand corner to "about this Mac" and let us know how much RAM it's seeing.

Thank you for your respond.

the ram i've got in this macbook is 16 GB, 1600 MHz, DDR3. And the Processor is 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7. I bought this mac in september 2012. It's the new Retina Macbook Pro. I was very happy working with it but unfortunately, most of Apple's application such as: email, iPhoto, calendar, Contacts, and some other Apps, won't open up properly and don't run normally and when I try to run them, I either need to "force quit" them, or I get the massage saying that: (For Example): "Mail quit unexpectedly." and gives 3 option of Ignore, Report and Reopen. The Reopen option does not work and the same issue appears.

Thank you very much for your respond again, and I'll try Starting Up my Mac, Holding "R" and I let you know the results.




hello again,

I did start up may mac holding R, and there were two options, first login as a Guest, or login normally. when I did use login as guest, I opened email and iPhoto applications, and they've both worked perfectly without any errors, (because I restricted the guest login to may mac, there are no data or information shared from my hard drive to be shown to guests).

On the other hand, I tried starting up the mac holding R again, and this time I did choose login normally, and unfortunately, the issues are still appearing.

Would you know any other solution for this issue please?
