I wonder if anyone can help me..  The Finder in Lion has for some bizarre reason, started asking me for my password everytime I want to delete a file.


On entering the password, it then proceedes to delete the file completely and not send it to Trash.


I havent installed anything recently and have even tried repairing permissions via Disk Utility and the Repair Function, but it still continues to occur


I dont want to have to continually enter my password to delete
