    Hi,

    I have this particular problem with my Finder.
    Each time I log IN again the Finder had reset, in other words it does not save the changes I make.

    For exemple:
    I add a app to the dock, next time in log IN it will be disappeared.
    I change the dock to the left side of my screen, next time I log IN, it will be at the botton again.
    In the trackpad preferences I change Tap to Click, I log In and I will have to set the preferences again.
    It's rather enjoying.

    I have another log IN on my mac and there I do not have this problem.

    I already tried to delete:
    com.apple.finder.plist
    com.apple.sidebarlists.plist
    and restarted Finder

    but it didn't solve the problem.

    Does anyone has any idea how to fix the error?
    I would like to avoid to recreate a new user, because the transfer of mail, Calender, Notes is a bit annoying.

    Thanks for helping me,
    Filip Langenbick

    Check permissions to your Preferences folder?
