What permissions repairs? What's the message at the end? Is it: "permissions repair complete"?
Can you post a sampling of the output in that window please.

bad sibling link is my error when verifying the disk.
I really think something is wrong with my macbook hd reader. Unless the OS is corrupting something every time I install? Maybe it is because of Java, it seems like every time my browser crashes, the OS is soon to follow.

First, do you absolutely have to have Java? Unless it is required, I would not have it installed or at least disable it in your browser(s).
Next, have you tried to repair your disk? You do need to boot up from either your install disks or use Command + R or Command + Option + R (recovery mode) to get to that Disk Utility and then repair your disk.

I have tried to repair several disks within OSX and they fail each time. I then ran them through tech tool pro and it doesn't come up with any errors and says the HD's are OK. I've also tried multiple versions of OSX to no avail.

Are you talking about that disk repair fails or that the permissions repair fails?
As for permissions repiar, it is quite normal to have messages there; the disk repair is different though: if Disk Utility can't repair it, you can try Disk Warrior, but that's not a guarantee.

Well i took the HD out and put it in a usb enclosure and repaired it with my main desktop. It works perfectly fine running through USB 3.0.
Seems like somethings wrong with the internal HD reader or something like that...?
