Ok if you heard before every problem in the damn book had happened to my ibook. Well now nothing will save to the hd. IT wont download I cant save anything in appleworks keynote andything. It wont ripp cd's. absolutley nothing that has to do with saving to the hd wont work. That is so terrible I am so damn frustrated. Every application is slowley not being able to open. One by one they wont open I am losing every application one by one it is driving me crazy when i lose explorer I am lost. I think I am just going to crash the god damn thing so i can replace it. What is the point of a computer that cant save to the hd it is useless, and cant open application. about the only damn thing that i can do is turn it on. If you read my other thread, you would know that is where my problems begin. But they are ending since i cant open any applications so what is the point. Can anyone help me?(sorry about the language, but I am so pissed.

try repair permissions. After every software update, and about every 2 weeks: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, varify permissions, repair permissions. Click repair permissions.

Those idiots! :rolleyes: THERE is no way repair pemissions can do harm! It should never have been made Admin only! Morons! That's like disallowing a guest in your home from defragging your doz box! You - I guess - have to tell them that!

Reboot the computer
as soon as it starts to boot up hold down Apple + S
Once single user mode is done loading type in
/sbin/fsck -f and hit enter
it looks like it should repair somethings. If it does repair run the test again to make sure it says OK
when its done type in reboot and it will start up the computer again (it might be restart I always get the confused)Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

I should have mentioned that - a very good idea. One thing to remember is to repeat that command until the dislpay does NOT read ****File System Changed****
