Asked by Dan Swift on 2011-03-09

When I go to System > Preferences > About Me, it says "Starting About Me" in the bottom panel, but that's it. It doesn't open.

Do you know of any work-arounds so I can get the same functionality? I don't mind editing configuration files.

Can you help with this problem?
