    What version of OSX does your Mac run? Snow Leopard? Lion? Mountain Lion? Are you an Administrator User on your Mac?

    Try this out:

    Just delete the folder com.apple.systempreferences from the Cache folder i.e. ~/library/Cache/com.apple.systempreferences. First close system preferences then
    delete folder then reboot; worked like a charm--good luck!
