    Hi guys,
    I have searched all over about this before and tried the numerous ideas of how to fix this problem, but nothing seems to work.
    Here is what I have tried so far on terminal.
    sudo killall -9 securityd
    sudo pkill -HUP securityd
    ssudo killall -HUP securityd
    Also tried repairing the keychain access but it says there are no problems.

    I am logged in as administrator, and never had this problem before and just noticed it when I couldn't install an app. I need to click the "install apps from anywhere" button on preferences/ security but can't make changes.

    Any ideas?
