i was just surfing the net before, i had LimeWire, Camino & a few other things open. i just went to Find something (cmd+F) and i saw that where it said "search in" the option was home. i have used Find before, and the option has most of the time been set to "everywhere". a few seconds after i clicked 'search' the beachball came up and then something crashed & Console came up, i didn't take any notice of it & just quit Console. now i wish i looked at the log to see what crashed. after i quit Console, the Finder was back at it's default settings, all of the prefrences i had changed were reset. i had set Console to save logs of crashes, are these saved in Home>Library>Logs>Crash Reporter? the Finder.chash.log says it last crashed November last year. how is it possible to reset all of the prefrences without having a crash? or is there another location where crash.logs are stored? i'm sort of paranoid about this because i was having a look at undergroundmac.com and seeing all that stuff about hacking and viruses freaked me out. could i have been hacked or something? it's sort of bugging me not knowing why all of my finder prefrences were reset. also, does LimeWire have spyware or anything? thanks for any help you can give me to ease my paranoia.
