Default PT ignores Play key, trash preferences?

Hi there,

I'm a mac user, but now i'm working on WinXP (Mbox 2 Pro). Everything ok untill today: when i press spacebar to start playing, i see the cursor jumps back and then stops. If i press 3,5 or 10 times it finally starts playing, but it's hell. No pre-roll, no sync, no wait-for-note... it seems like a poltergeist.
If I were on Mac I would trash preferences, but i don't know where to find them to delete them. I haven't touched a PC for years, please could anybody help me? what do you do when something bizarre is happening?

Thanx

Default Re: PT ignores Play key, trash preferences?

How do I trash my Pro Tools preferences on Windows XP?
Trash the Pro Tools LE preferences:
Local Disk C:\Documents and Settings\"your user name folder"\Application Data\Digidesign

If you don't see the Application or Digidesign folders, then they are hidden. To show these folders: Tools Menu > Folder Options > View Tab > Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders" > Click Apply and OK.

Trash the entire DAE Preferences folder:
Local Disk C:\Program Files\Digidesign\DAE\DAE Prefs

(For Pro Tools v6.1 the DAE prefs are located in Local Disk C:\Program Files\Common Files\Digidesign\DAE\DAE prefs.)

empty recycle bin
i have alao deleted all digidatabase folders on each drive as well
