Mac File Permissions

There are some privilege related bugs in some versions of the Mac OS. Apple has a utility to clean up these issues. See

According to Apple..."Most users of Mac OS X have not intentionally modified privileges and simply need a utility to reset system privileges to their correct default values."

For Mac OS X 10.2 or later, open Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/).

Select your Mac OS X startup volume in the column on the left of the Disk Utility window,

then click the First Aid tab.

Click the Repair Disk Permissions button.
