Problem with permission - not even allowed to open Safari
I have a mbp mid 2010 with 8gb ram running Lion 10.7.4
I have recently experienced problems with permissions, and have tried fixing it.
The original problem was that I wasn't allowed to update the SW via the update tool. This problem arose approx. 4 weeks ago. Before then it wasn't a problem. I posted this problem on this forum, and got help by reseting the permission to default by pressen command +R during boot, and via the terminal to reset the permissions. This did the trick a very short while....
Now I have new problem - I'm not not even allowed to open Safari due to lack of permission. When having disc doctor to analyse the hard drive it shows a very very long list, with issues.
I have a time machine backup on my NAS, but I don't have permission to access it - can anybody help, please
No, can't say I have.
Could very well well be an image format issue, or a corrupted file. What platform is the source from (iOS, Android?). And what does "not being able to open" mean exactly?
You might also try a reset: Simultaneously hold down the Home and On buttons until the device shuts down. Ignore the off slider if it appears. Once shut down is complete, if it doesn't restart on it own, turn the device back on using the On button. In some cases it also helps to double click the Home button and close all apps from the tray before doing the reset.
