because I was able to delete an item without typing in my password yesterday, then all of a sudden I have to type it in every time. So, I went to the hard drive, which only had System, Admin, and some other choice... I included my name after clicking the add button. I KNEW, I was messing with stuff I should have left alone! I then gave myself permissions for everything included. THis was taking forever, so impatiently I forced quit. THEN... I kept getting messages every second for /system/library......./kext.... those are the only words I remember... I force quit the finder and same thing happened. NOW, every time I try to restart it hangs while the processor or fan or both speed up and the computer gets very hot. I tried resetting PRAM (???) and COMMAND+S and typed in fsck -yf (as suggested in another post from this forum.) I tried restarting from my Install 1 DVD and nothing. I restarted with option and DVD wasn't even a choice. Does anyone know what I could do to fix my messing around with permissions and DVD boot problems or is this just one of those situations where I'll have to take it in??
ANY info would be appreciated!
