    recently 2 finger scrolling has stoped working on my early 2008 macbook pro
    but if i create a new account it works fine

    what pref file can I delete to fix this as I don't think I've found a trackpad specific plist

    cheers

    Are you sure by chance that two finger scrolling hasn't been disabled in System Preferences? If not, it could very well be a preference file issue as you've said.

    Casual googling will bring you a quick fix, and you can see people talking about the same problem here and there.

    If you don't want to read them, try the following terminal command:

    defaults write -g com.apple.trackpad.scrollBehavior 2

    and then reboot.

    I hope it will solve the problem.
