After SSD Install, default apps revert on restart
I'm on the latest update of Mountain Lion.
So I installed an SSD Samsung 840, and Enabled Trim.
Now the problem is, I have a default set of apps I always use.
Chrome for browsing
Quicktime to play all MP3s
When I restart my computer, everything goes back.
Safari becomes the default browser
iTunes becomes the default MP3 player
What's going on?
I do not have FileVault enabled.

I am reviving this thread to explain to others my issue.
The hard drive was faulty. It was a Samsung 840 500GB
So I installed the SSD and start up times improved, it was snappier, quieter.
But I was faced with the above issue.
I verified disk permissions which had so many issues and corruptions.
This was surprising because I didn't clone my older drive. It was a totally clean install.
I went ahead and repaired, but I still had the same issue of default apps not staying default after a restart.
I formatted the hard drive and started fresh again, it worked fine after that for about a week. Then the stutters and slow downs happened.
My computer would crash right when I woke it from sleep and it forced me to hold down the power button.
This happened up until yesterday. When I restarted, I got the folder with question mark.
I verified the hard drive was dead. I have switched back to the old hard drive and await a replacement from Samsung.
PS, I had trim enabled from day 1
