    poses a problem.
    Does anyone have a backdoor solution to this? Thanks in advance.

    You changed all system files to mode 0600, which is rw only for root. A very
    bad move.

    You essentially messed your installation. The easiest thing you can do to
    correct the problem is to re-install the OS.

    fantastic :-) , How did you ever think that that would be a good idea to
    do......

    To recover
    boot from cdrom into recovery mode, mount your partitions, chroot to it and
    put root back to being uid 0

    Dav..
