The Repair Privileges utility restores the privileges of Mac OS X system files and Apple-installed software to their default configuration. All previous modifications to the privileges of these files and directories will be lost. While this utility does not change permissions of third-party software (if third-party software has changed Apple-set permissions), that software may not work as expected after using the utility.
Use the Repair Privileges utility to resolve any of the following issues: An error of type -192, alert message in Disk Copy when disk images fail to become available. An error of type -108, alert message in Print Center when spooling print jobs. You are running Classic without superuser (root) Privileges - alert message. An Admin user cannot drag files to a folder to which they should have write access. Files are unexpectedly locked and cannot be unlocked in the Finder. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
