Reboot into the Recovery HD by choosing the ‘Apple‘ menu > Restart, then hold down the ‘Command’ + R’ keys on the keyboard during the start up process. When you see the Apple Logo you can let go. When the machine boots you may have to choose your language then you will see the OS X Utilities screen. Select the Disk Utility and then select Continue. Then in Disk Utility select Macintosh HD in the left column (if there are two with that name or it is named something else choose the first indented item) select the First Aid tab if it is not already selected, then click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that says “OK” in green type then select Repair Disk Permissions. If it is not ok let me know.
I didn't know it was a competition? LOL I would have got to the SMC reset.... I wanted to check the drive first but you never came back so it is kind of hard to help you in that case.. Great..
No problem I don't work 24 hours a day I took the question when I saw it. I certainly don't expect you to rate me at all. Glad you got it fixed...
