If it won't launch, you can't. Period. Sometimes when an app won't launch, there is a problem with the hard drive. As far as I can tell, you've spent way more time on this iMac than I would have. Its technology is 10 years old. If you want a Mac to just get to know, find a refurbed Mini - Intel based at that. Also, don't worry about OS 9. That is dead tech, too.
I cannot even access my System Profiler. The System Profiler bounces on the dock and quickly disappears. Will have to set a Master Password to access this?
James, please start providing us with some details about the exact steps you take or I will have to bow out. It's always hard to tell if you followed our instructions or not. In this case I recommended to repair permissions but you didn't mention whether you did, you also didn't respond to whether you have a Previous Systems folder. Both factors I have seen cause your problem. Work with us guy, we like to help, but we can't read minds.

Ok well I did repair permissions and I even started up the iMac repairing permissions using First Aid. I still cannot access the More Info tab. I do have a Previous systems folder and deleted most of everything in it except for 2 files I cannot delete: boot.efi and bootX. Will that help? Anything I can do at this point?
