    Any time I try to remove an icon from the dock or an item from the login items and then logout/restart they come right back. It's like OS X is remembering my last login and then just duplicating it. I can't get it to keep it the settings I give it. Google and a quick search of the forums gave me nothing.

    Anyone know of a fix?

    Try this:

    Find the following plist file:

    Move that file to your Desktop.
    Restart. This will make a new default plist file in Preferences.
    Try removing an item now and Restart again.
    Is it still gone?
    If so, problem solved. Trash the plist file on the Desktop.
