    I went from a Mac Pro to a MBP recently and did the whole Migration Assistant thing and it worked out pretty good for the most part.

    I noticed recently when I tried to use the Adobe uninstaller that it wouldn't work and then I tried to delete a couple files from my Applications folder and after it prompted me to put in my password it gave me a message.

    "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 100022)."

    I can't uninstall anything now or even simply put things in the Trash.

    I tried to delete some Firmware that was for my old Mac Pro desktop and Firmware for my old Nvidia graphics card which obviously I don't have anymore and the same story. Same error.

    I tried to google search the error and it didn't turn up much. If anybody has any ideas that would be swell.

    Okey just realized something else. When I go to System Prefs/Users & Groups I have the current user, Admin (me) and other users, Guest User (sharing only).

    The preferences are locked and when I click the lock to make changes my password screen pops up. I enter the password and the screen disappears but the lock is still locked and the prefs are still greyed out.
