Repairing permissions:

If your computer begins to act strangely, the first thing you should do is repair your permissions. You should also repair your permissions on a regular basis, particularly after software updates or installs, even if nothing seems wrong.

Open Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/Disk, select your hard-drive, switch to the 'First Aid' tab and press "Repair Disk Permissions."
