I have gotten a long list where most of the notices are related to a host of different languages.... see sample below. 


Permissions differ on "System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/RemoteDesktop.menu/Contents/Resources/Spanish.lproj/RemoteDesktopMenu.ni b", should be drwxr-xr-x , they are -rwxr-xr-x .


I have repaired the disk permissions but can anyone suggest why is this happening?  I don't access different languages so how could it get tangled up.. also these refer to a remote desktop.... I don't have a remote desktop...other than being able to access my work computer via a vpn which I must actively log on to to use...


FYI - I have just turned the computer on... should there even be permission to repair when you just turn the conputer on?/  Actually this is another thing on which I would apprecaite input.  When we first got the computer, I was told NOT to turn it off, just use slepp.  I was recently told yes turn it off to "reboot" and get it to run better....(I have been getting the wheel of dooom a fair btit)


When I first joined this community (when I first got a Mac), I also asked how to "keep your computer "clean", a thread which has gotten a lot of hits, but which started a big debate on where reparigin permssions etc on a regular basis was a good idea or not.... at the risk of opening that can of worms again....what are current thoughts on that?


(i have just read that there are messages you can safely ignore, but I would still like to understand why this is happening..)


I have iMac running Snow Leopard 10.6.8
