    I just got Lion last night for the first time and I am currently trying to set my Finder back up again, creating Folders for my various requirements. When I try to create a Folder, I am getting prompted to create a password. If I want to rename it I also get prompted for a password.

    Please could someone tell me how to turn this off? It's really annoying!

    Sounds like Lion went crazy and changed several folder permissions. Repair disk permissions.
