It seems to me this is rather a permissions issue than a TeX problem.
Where did you copy your TeX documents? Before trying a TeX reinstall,
I would copy all the documents in a folder inside your Home, then, in
Finder, select the folder and use File --> Get Info (ð-I). In the
Info window, click in the Ownership & Permissions triangle, then in
Details; make sure Owner is you and Access is Read & Write; finally,
click in the button Apply to enclosed items...
