    Hey everyone,

    Every time i restart the computer, my dock along with all my other user related settings are reset to some unknown saved point. All the finder windows I had open at the point are also opened. I have multiple users.

    Any help?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you changed the Home folder name of these accounts?

    No. I might want to add that recently one of my users was corrupted so I had to move all it's Library from the old one to a new one. I have of course set the right permissions.

    10% of my 160gb harddrive is free.

    So this is happening on all the accounts? Well, I guess you could fsck a go to make sure your hard drive isn't acting up. I'm not sure what the next step would be... :eek:
