First off - don't play around with chown - especially if you are a newbie - it's a very powerful and dangerous command for which there normally is no use
Second which version of Mint?
Third - what do you mean by
when i block the session that i'm working in

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Do you mean lock instead of block?

In any case, what did you do to fix the problems you made?
