Sadly I have a feeling I will be here asking for help for most of the week (if not month) as I run into problems. Everytime I reboot my system, my volume is set to the max. I can lower it without issue, and if I log out and back in, the volume stays the same. It only happens when I reboot. Anyone know why this is happening and/or how I would go around fixing the issue? Edit: I think the issues I am running into are caused by bad permissions on most of the com.apple.* files. Will the file be recreated with the correct permissions if I move/delete the files? If not, what should the permissions be so I can manually change them back. Before I forget, yes I have been repairing permissions, but not all the files are being fixed.
