I have made a mistake and have no clue how to fix it. When I call Apple they are so confused. Here is the deal. I was using a public internet access. So I went to make sure my hard drive permission was not available to everyone. So I changed all three to never.....

Admin - never
System - never
Everybody - never

I think this is the three that is listed.

Well after checking emails I shut off the computer. Later that night I turned it on and it opens to the grey page with the apple and spinning wheel then the screen turns blue and you see the small spinning grey circle and the spinning grey circle will leave and come back leave and come back. It will not boot up. I have checked my drive with Disk Utility and everything is ok.

Somebody told me since I sent all my 3 permissions to "NEVER" I have "locked" myself out of my computer.

Can anyone help???

Please, Please, Please

Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
