Default Re: Mac Preferences

Hi there. You should never trash your whole preferences folder, it can really mess things up. Usually you just need to go inside that folder and delete the preferences associated with a certain application if that application is acting funny, but deleting the whole folder?... that's a can of worms.

Basically every application, control panel etc. will now have regressed back to the default settings on your system now. You'll have to re-do everything, including your web browser favorites, time zone, memory allocations etc. etc. etc.

I do not envy you this task. good luck.
