Need help with shared folder Q.Q
Okay, My problem is im a big gamer fan, mostly play alot of world of warcraft.
Sometime during my playing I have deleted the original shared folder.
And because of that I cant install world of warcraft updates.
Ive reinstalled a hell of alot of times.
Ive tried recreate the folder but it says I dont have sufficent privleges to alter the name of folders under /user
But yet im the only admin and account on my computer.
Ive used disc utility to try and repair disc priveleges and it never worked
Still says when i try to rename the folder in users ''shared'' You do not have sufficent privelleges, anyone had this problem or know how to fix it?q.q
Im completely lost, also ive tried create new admin accounts and wiping everything from my HD, with no avail, HELP PLS
Also, restoring to factory settings/apps isnt an option

The folder should be /Users/Shared. Does it exist ?
and permissions on this folder should be Owner : root Group : wheel and the Permissions should be 777
So using Terminal type these commands on by one
if folder does not exist then type : sudo mkdir /Users/Shared
sudo chown root:wheel /Users/Shared
sudo chmod 777 /Users/Shared
there is alos a Sticky Bit set on this folder but lets test this first and see how you go.

To set the sticky bit on /Users/Shared, use the command:
sudo chmod u+t /Users/Shared
ls -al /Users/Shared
The ls command will list /Users/Shared. The line near or at the top that doesn't show any name, just a dot, should look something like this:
drwxrwxrwt 393 root wheel 13362 Dec 14 2009 .
