System preferences "Loading" HELP!

System preferences "Loading" HELP!

So i just installed mavericks on my laptop, everything works fine (except wifi of course because my card is not compatible)

But i have a problem, when i enter system perferences, and click on Users & Groups, or Network, or ANY other tab except for general. It just says "Loading" but the setting never pops up, only way to close it is to force close the system preferences.. I have tried to repair the disc premissions but that didn't work, still the same problem, can anyone help me? Thanks.

Try to make a new user account and log in there. See if the system preferences panes load. If so, go back to your other account, go to ~/Users/[your username]/Library/Preferences/and move com.apple.systemprefs.plist to your desktop. Reboot your system. A new systemprefs.plist will be created then. See if that fixes your problem.

Thanks for your answer, I already tried that, same problem occurs on a new account, also. If i login to any other account than root, i get a lot of questions marks on apps. Because everytime i start the Hackintosh it says mac osx want to make some changes so i have to login as root to allow it..

Boot into single user mode (bootflag -s), from there type "fsck -fy". 
Reboot.

It's not clear to me as of why "Mac osx wants to make some changes". I know that Niresh has some post-installation tool built in, but you don't need to be root for that.

Thanks i will try that now.

 

Update: Just did it, it ended with "the volume appears to be ok" But i still have the same problem. Can't open stuff in the preferences, like network/users and groups etc. It just get suck on "loading" :(

And yes it's pretty weird that it happens everytime i reboot.. This is what is looks like:
