Ok. Let's try moving this preference file from your USER Library:
Drop that on your Desktop, then reboot. If the problem is solved, delete the one you moved. If it is NOT solved, then put it back and read on.
If the prior tip didn't solve this, then we can try something a little more radical as a test, but be sure you understand this entirely before doing so. Move the entire Preferences folder for your user to the Desktop, then reboot. Do NOT delete it. The goal here is to prove if the problem is a preference file at all. Regardless of if it solves it or not, you'll want to restore the original folder because you will reset a lot of preferences in the system and many apps back to defaults.
If the above doesn't work, put the folder back, then repeat for the Preferences folder in the root Library:
Drop it on your Desktop, then reboot. Plan on putting it back like before, even if it fixes the problem or not. Let us know how any of this works out.
