    I had to do a system restore from TM and found that many applications had corrupted prefs upon restarting. Finder, Launchbar, many others. Some lost license info, some had more severe problems. Nothing changed; it was a complete restore with same paths, etc.

    Any way to avoid this next time?

    Ive done complete restores before, just don't remember having that problem. Sorry you did.
