I encountered one problem on my MacBook Pro and it left me quite depressed.  Each time I wanted to login and check for the new Apps I couldn’t. This was quite the issue because I am awaiting for the new update of Mac OS X Lion, which brings some good new changes to Apple computers and bridges the gap between iOS and Mac OS.

So after browsing quite a while I found a good solution that can help you in three easy steps.

Step #1 – Open Terminal

Step #2 – Paste this

rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.appstore.plist
rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.storeagent.plist
rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost/*

Step #3 – Press Enter.

Viola, your problems with logging into App Store are solved! You can now purchase apps and keep them up to date all the time. And I wish you successful update to Lion OS X!
