    Well, the honeymoon is over I suppose.

    My new MacBook forgets programs, settings, blah de blah after a restart consistently, even after two re-installs of OS X.

    Does anyone know why my computer would erase Widgets, My DivX Pro registration, Dock Settings, Applications, etc after every restart? Did I instal some malware? Is my HardDrive a goner?

    Are you logging in with the same account?
    Are you manually changing the name of your User folder? (PS: Never do that)

    There is some critical thing that is happening, or that you are doing, that you haven't told us. Need much more information to hazard a guess.

    Yeah, um, you don't want to do that. That's bad.
