System Integrity Protocol ....came out in el capiitan. Refuses to allow tampering with the system/directory ...intended for internet protection it restricts owner manipulation of the system ....like customizing applications, icons, dock, so into terminal and disable "csruti disable" ....system accepts change ... finished, back to terminal "csrutil enable" exchanging safety for freedom.......inconvenient for older apps. Apple gets to play the recognized developer apple approved card ...........hope this helps

Boot into recovery (CMD+R)
Click on Utilities in the menu across the top then select Terminal.
type cd /Volumes then ls.
identify the drive you require.
Type cd /(your drivename)/
type csrutil disable.


You should then be told that SIP is disabled and prompted to restart.

If you need to reverse this at any time repeat the process and use csrutil enable
