You really should repair permissions after every software update. Also about every two weeks or so, even if there wasn't an update. Just one more way to maintain your machine!:cool:

Should I use disc utilities from the startup disc or just in my utilities? Whats the difference between the two?

As a mac user, you'll definitely want to get in the habit of verifying and repairing permissions on a regular basis.

You can just use Finder>Applications>Utillities>Disk Utility

It is the same app as the one on the CD, but you won't have to use the CD to run it.
