    Whenever I open Terminal, it automatically tries to run the command sudo repairpermissions, every time I open it. I don't use Terminal all that much, so it's not that big of a deal, but does anyone know how to stop this? I don't remember ever setting it to do this automatically.

    This is either happening because of a Terminal preference that's set, or because of content in your ~/.profile file. The Terminal setting is located in Terminal's preferences, and is called something like "command to run at startup". The .profile file also contains stuff to run at startup - if you don't want the things in there to run, just delete the file.

    Didn't work. I deleted .profile, but it still comes up every time. Here's a screen shot of Terminal when I just opened it and the settings I have for preferences. Don't know if it will help at all. Also, could I have accidentally changed some setting in a program like Onyx or Mac Pilot to do this? I try to be careful in those programs, but who knows.
