    I did the same thing last night and it took me a while to figure it out myself. Once you reinstall the original preferences.app folder, make sure you go into preferences and reset them to 755. Everything should work then.

    you...are...GOD!!! lol i never would have tried this i thought that changing the permissions on the folder changed the ones in the files that the folder contained. my settings are back to normal no. i trully thank you for this. haha this is the best forum
