I tried adding programs and taking some out but nothing happens. How do I fix this?
do you think installing parallels had anything to do with it?
have you tried restarting?
yea I restarted and no luck. I'm the admin on my laptop so I can't set permissions. at least I think I can't
no, repair permissions, not set permissions
Utilities > Disk Utility
select drive on left pane
click check permissions, then repair permissions
and if you're the admin, you should be able to do anything on your laptop
yeah i ran that but it said there was an error on my hardrive so i'm just gonna reinstall my os. how do I back up my software installed on my laptop?
take the OS disc and boot up from it
once you boot up from the OS X disc that came with your comp, run Disk Utility and repair permissions from that
