    Unhappy Really worried.
    First time Mac user here, just got a Mac a couple of weeks ago, and when trying to verify permissions on the disk, or repair them I get this:

    2009-09-23 18:09:47 +0100: Warning: SUID file
    "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    2009-09-23 18:10:47 +0100: Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.

    What's going to/is happening?

    How can I fix it?

    Welcome to the Forum. There is a heap of info out there on Permissions - have a hunt on this forum, but most of all don't sweat it.

    Specs:
    2012 13" MBP (2.5 i5, 8GB)
    I found both:

    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.

    and

    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.


    in the list of permission errors, "you can safely ignore." I strongly encourage you to look through that list if any more permission problems come up.

    Now, I realize that this is for 10.5 but I will assume that these transfer over to 10.6.

    Here is one more to look at even though it was written before 10.6
    About Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions feature
