Default scanning plugins

I deleted my preferences. Now PT10.3.10 scans all plugins every launch. I’ve deleted prefs several times, restarted, repaired, and re-installed PT.

When I watch it runs the initial quick scan at startup, then deletes the “installedplugins” file and rebuilds it. Every time. If I lock the file it stops with an error that the file is locked. I have to start PT multiple times because of the “out of memory” scan thing.

Any ideas?

OS 10.8.5

One idea; PT will rescan all plugins after any time you trash prefs
