    I was using the app MainMenu for awhile, decided to get rid of it but having used that app for "so long," I sort of forgot what it looked like to go into Disk Utility myself to repair permissions.

    I recall this dialogue box:

    But I don't ever recall seeing this one:

    Please, please tell me that it's normal. :eek: :p

    :edit: Running 10.4.8 on a G5 iMac.

    I'm pretty sure that's fine. I run as an admin so I don't come across these boxes, but I think the second box came with one of the recent-ish point upgrades. I forget which.

    Of course, I could be completely wrong. I often am. :cool:

    It's normal. I don't run as an admin, and both boxes pop up for me too.
