    I recently moved my account to a new machine and have got an interesting permissions issue that's preventing me from editing a lot of files, even though my user has read/write permissions. If you look at the attached image, there is an extra "everyone" with "custom" permissions. I can't remove it although if I change it to read/write, I can edit the file but obviously I don't want to get everyone read/write access. How can I strip the extra stuff here? And i'd like to find a way to do it for my entire home folder since there are files like this everywhere..

    You can't highlight that 2nd everyone account and delete it with the minus sign below the list?
