Hi Everyone!

A while back I had to reinstall because of problems with the "activity transport monitor". Ever since then, Im having all kinds of problems with iTunes & iPhoto and who knows what else that I just havent found yet.

I have noticied that everytime I run disc utility this shows up:


Determining correct file permissions.

Permissions differ on ./Library, should be drwxrwxr-t , they are drwxrwxr-x

Owner and group corrected on ./Library

Permissions corrected on ./Library


After Ive repaired it, it says that it has been corrected but I dont think it is really because it ALWAYS comes up!

Does anyone know what this could mean? Im not a computer expert by far...so I dont even know what to look up to try to figure out what the prob is.


Any help is so greatly appreciated!!

    They are innocuous messages you can safely ignore. They will be repeated every time your repair permissions. BTW, you shouldn't have to be repairing permissions unless the OS has notified you of a permissions problem.
