One of my favs - along with Beaky Buzzard.

Sounds like you did a repair permissions - there is also a Verify/Repair drive in Disk Utility - it can't be run while booted up into the OS.

Need to either boot from the original OS disk - am "assuming" this is an '08-'09 MBA that still had hard drives in them - I forget, but I think they shipped with a USB key with the OS on it.

Or if the machine has been updated to 10.7 or 10.8, you can reboot holding down the command and R keys - select Disk Utility after it boots up.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
