    Hello,

    When I attempt to repair disk permissions using Disk Utility, I get tons of permission differences relating to Java/JavaVM. It claims it fixes them but if I run repair disk permissions right after, the same messages show up..

    Why doesn't it actually fix them?

    Here is an example

    You can - and should - ignore it, it's perfectly normal.

    Ah good to know it isn't just me. I actually ran a Java app that turned out to be a likely Windows virus. But since it's a Java app, I wasn't sure if it could also affect Macs. I then ran the Disk Utility and those popped up
