    Hard to know what is wrong based on the "blue desktop".

    Have you restarted?

    If so: Try booting from your install/restore disk and run Disk Utility from there and repair disk permissions and maybe verify (and if needed repair) the disk.

    What did you do just prior to the "disaster"?

    Edit: You might be able to regain access, too, if you boot from another disc/disk, using the "Get Info" window again...

    why why why would you change your whole Hard Drive to read only??? Repair Disk Permissions if you're able to.

    Why on earth would you change your permissions on your hard drive to "no access"??? You obviously need access for anything to run. I agree with Mitthrawnuruodo: you need to repair your permissions.

    No, click on spotlight, type in disk utility, click on your hd, click repair permissions.

    People have already replied with what steps you should take to fix it. Maybe you can put this thread through a translator?
