Posable corruption os system run utilities from you Install DVD if errors found it may be able to fix also run fix disk permissions

IF you also have the Norton 8 utilities ( must be at least 8) run the disk test if any nodes are found you will probably have to do a transfer fix / reinstall (needs a second mac that you transfer all to then format drive and reinstall transferring back)

second possibility is drive has issues run either of the tools above if norton allow surface scan to be done
If you have any other disk utilities that alow for surface scan use them.
