Someone or something mucked with file permissions. Open Disk Utility. From the Applications folder, open Utilities, and then double-click the Disk Utility icon. In the column on the left, click on your startup disk. Select the First Aid tab, and then click Repair Disk Permissions. (Seeing some errors or warnings during this process is normal.)
