    If the plist is all you deleted then just reboot and the OS will create a new one.

    Look in your Applications folder or use SpotLight to search for it.

    Where is it? Move it back to the Applications folder. How are you trying to launch System Preferences? Apple Menu? Dock? Directly from the app?

    Sorry. You've lost me. Can you find System Preferences on your hard drive or not.

    Download Pacifist and extract System Preferences from your installation disc. Then, as stated above, when you run it, a new plist will be created.

    I don't have an istallation cd,only the restore usb card.When I plug it in it is prompting me to restore.Can't someone just send me the plist and version or will that not work?
