Try reinstalling Mac OS X. Boot off the installation CD, and follow the guided installer program. Make sure you choose "Archive+Install" option to preserve your data and settings.

It should give you the language options, and then there should be some sort of license agreement. Hit accept, and then it will go on to the next step... you just follow the prompts. The only window that you see on your screen is the installer.
