Why would my permissions require constant repair?

My system has been running slowly so I swept for viruses, found none then repaired permissions. There were repairs to several permissions. The problem was solved for a short time but then the slowness returned. I again repaired permissions and found the the same permissions were in need of repair. Just out of curiosity I immediately ran "repair permissions" again and the same permissions were repaired again. Something is changing the permissions as soon as they are reset. Any ideas?
