    Specs:

    Exclamation Disk Utility - Repair Disk Permissions
    Is this OK, serious? Is this something to be concerned about? Should I do something and if so what? Needless to say I am still new to the Mac... a former PC owner and sooo glad to be in the Mac camp... Thanks ahead for help.

    No, all is well. That's one of those messages that can safely be ignored. There's a huge list here:

    No - that particular warning has been there since at least 10.4 and don't have a clue why they can't take care of it.

    There are plenty more not to worry about - I simply ignore any of them that are not repaired as the list is too long to go and compare against - the full list is available here.

    (took me longer to find the link than Kev)
    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.

    If this does concern you, deselect the show details box or use ACLr8 software.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
