    Run Verify Disk Permissions. Then run Repair Disk Permissions.

    If you get another failed run, take a screenshot and post it. (Or PM me and I'll give you my email address.)

    Also, boot up from your MBP disk, go to the File pulldown, run Disk Utility, and Repair your disk.

    You wouldn't possibly have Logitech's Harmony software installed, would you?

    You don't have to log in as the Root User to repair permissions. Just log in as the Administrator and repair permissions. It is best to leave the Root User deactivated (if you somehow learn how to activate it anyway).

    I haven't used Leopard yet, but it sounds like you have some sort of simplified finder that is limiting what you can see in that account. I would log into as the administrator, then check out the specific accounts in System Prefs, just to make sure that Simple Finder, or a restricted finder isn't enabled in the account giving you problems. (That's probably not the solution, but it is worth a try. )

    I know you don't need to log into the Root to run Verify/Repair Permissions. The problems that were trying to be resolved weren't being resolved running Permissions in a normal Admin log-in.

    I knew there was a reason I left this in the drawer unopened for so long.

    Did you folks do the upgrade, or wipe and install from scratchola?
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    I hope you mean "archive and install" because there really is no reason to wipe and install, unless you are installing a new HD, or having problems with your current one.
