When was the last time

that you repaired permissions?
Go to Applications/Utilities folder and launch Disk Utility. Select your drive from the left hand window and, in the right hand window, click on Repair Permissions.
Let the program do its thing.
On completion, quit from Disk Utility and see if anything has improved.

HD problem
by mrmacfixit Forum moderator / January 20, 2006 10:15 PM PST

Ok, so now we know that you have a problem with your HD which needs to be fixed.
Do you have any other utilities other than Disk Utility? Programs like Disk Warrior, TechTool Pro and the like. DO NOT use Norton Utilities.
Disk Warrior and TechTool Pro are the two "must have" utilities for a Mac user.
Were you trying to repair the Disk or repair Disk Permissions? They are two different things.
Is the machine still under warranty?
