I am trying to see how to fix the permissions on my computer. I have ran the fix permissions from the Disk Utility until it says everything is fine. I have even booted from a Snow Leopard disk to run fix persmissions and repair disk. Still having the same problem.



The problem is, that in the finder I still keep getting errors saying extension "x" could not be used because it was not installed correctly. The computer crashed while doing an update so I believe this to be what caused the problem. I have way to many applications to have to reinstall each one. I have the old extension folders for the Library and System (that I know are fine) but cannot figure out what to boot from that will show the old finder so I can replace them (and I obviously cannot replace them on an active system). Unfortuately all my latest TimeMachine BU have the corrupt system now too. I want to update to Lion but not with a corrupt system. Please help.

Mac Pro 2.66 Dual Intel 13GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhoto 8.0.3, iTunes 10, iPhone 3GS 8G
