Having just completed a recovery from my back up volume and then re install of my OS. I then did a verify disk and all is ok with my hard disk. I then verified disk permissions and followed with repair permissions which showed repairs done and repeated this three times hoping the verifications would reduce but they apparently didn't. I had approx 200 permission issues and thought after each repair this would reduce but it didn't seem to. My iMac is 7 years old running Lion OSX 10.7.5 and understand there may be slight support issues due to it's age but if I kept repairing permissions would they eventually disappear or will there always be some there? I have checked for software updates and there isn't any to download.
