    I just rebooted my computer and logged in to my user and then it said, do you want to add your apple id to your computer, and i said no, and then it said configuring mac. When i logged in i hade all my files everything was like normal, my safari windows were open. What happened? And iBooks was added to my dock? what?

    weird? Maybe some kinda apple update, my terminal background disappeared and my screenshot location thing, and other small things like that.


    Do you know where these kinds of settings are stored? I really want to restore them.

    I also checked my preferences folder from some days ago and its 400 files more than my today???

    All my safari extensions are also removed and i can't go to any sites except macrumors

    Same here. Came out of the blue. I'm very curious to hear what's prompted this.

    The Netherlands
    Clean installed OS X 10.9 yesterday and I was asked for Apple ID and pw for the installation of iCloud on my MP 3.1. Never hesitated keying in. Received a mail that my Apple ID was used:

    (translated from Dutch)
    Your Apple ID (***) was used to login on iMessage on a Mac Pro named “MACPRO”.
    Date and time: 5 april 2014, 12:42 uur PDT
    Operating System: Mac OS X,10.9,13A598

    Since then it reboots without, but curious what caused your issues.
