when i want to start iTunes it is showing the message 'The folder iTunes is on a locked disk or you don't have write permissions for this folder.' and it quits after clicking ok.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    You don't give any of the back story?  Did it work properly before?


    Did this just start happening?


    New Machine ?


    New account?


    Transfer files out to a external HD?


    All I can say at this point is (command-i) with the app highlited in your apps folder,  In this info pain,  unlock the pad lock lower right and give yourself permissions.
