Default Corrupted preferences every week?

Hi, with my old system I hardly remember trashing Digi preferences twice in 5 years.

With my new rig, I have been getting -1122 errors, so I have to trash preferences, empty the trash and reboot system. It has happened at least three times in the past 7 days.

Also, whenever i do this procedure, besides re-declaring interfaces, the legacy adat bridge does not pop up at the I/O set-up until I completlly turn off the system and re-start it from zero.

Is this normal? Is it time for drive maintenance (Norton, Warrior, Genius) ? repair anything?

Quanta´s technical support (Digi Brazil) suggested me installing 10.4.10 combo over the factory bundled 10.4.9 of my MAc Pro 2.66.

I just had a kernel crash and now started having the -1122 problem as well. My system also sometimes freezes after power-on or restart (doesn't even make it to the startup chime), it will sometimes stop responding with the beach ball (and does not unfreeze) and I have had about 5 total kernel crashes (where the screen grays with the gibberish in the center of the OS screen). This particular HD PCIe system on Mac Pro is the most unstable ProTools system I have had to date. There must be a hardware problem. . . Deleting the DAE Preferences Folder did get me going past this 1122 problem for now. . .

Did you have any luck solving your problem?

I had this behaviour on a PPC Dual 2.0 PCIe. It just kept getting worse. I took it to the Apple repair centre and got they put a new logic board in. It's been fine since. However, with a 4 week turn around I had to buy a Mac Pro in the meantime.

It has just disappeared for a while.
I frequently do the memory reset procedure.
Seems to help for a while.

That's why I did put a Backup/restore preference in my ProTools Pref and Database Helper

Just Setup your interfaces and preferences
QUIT ProTools because the preferences are only written to disk at quit.
Start the database helper
backup

When ever you get a problem, you can go back to a working preference set.

cool. I have previously seen this utility but just very recently I had to start troubleshooting the -1122 erros.
The database trashing procedure is necessary in which situations?
