SpamSieve Quit and Won't Re-Open

A week ago, I reinstalled SpamSieve because it quit suddenly and would not re-open. It still would not open after I re-installed it, but it did so after I updated my OS to OS 10.10.5. I did notice that SS wasn’t catching quite as much spam as usual in the week since the re-install.

However, the exact same thing suddenly happened today. My OS is up to date. This is also happening with another application, Skitch.

I would like to send the error report I get when I try to open SpamSieve, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to copy it, so I made Screenshots. I truly can’t function without SpamSieve, so I’d like to figure out why this is happening and fix it.

It looks like your copy of SpamSieve is damaged. Normally, I would recommend reinstalling a fresh copy. However, given that you’ve already done that and are also having trouble with another app, my guess is that there may be a problem with your Mac’s hard drive that is causing files to repeatedly be damaged or deleted.
