How Can I Fix This?

I just updated from OSx 10.4 to 10.6. I'm hating 10.6 more than anything right now. It does weird things and I'm hoping someone here can help me. They're not big problems but they're annoying to deal with and I never had these problems in 10.4.
1) Every time I reboot/shutdown my computer and I click on any folder or my external, all the files are scattered in that folder. None of them stay organized. I like to arrange by kind and have to do this every time I open a folder after a reboot or start up.
2) When I want to attach a file via Gmail, it won't go to the previous folder I just opened a file from. Generally when I'm attaching files, I'm attaching more than one from the same folder. THIS IS SUPER ANNOYING. Especially when I have to scroll a ways to find the folder over and over and over. 10.4 would always open up to the previous folder I attached a file from.
I tried to find some help regarding this but I can't find any. Again, not huge problems but they really disrupt the work flow. If anyone knows a quick fix around this that would be awesome.

1) Scattered how? Is there a pattern, or does it seem to be random?
What is checked/selected in Show View Options?

It's random. One file will be a few scrolls down, another will be a scroll or two to the side. They're all over the place. It's only when I reboot/restart. Doing the show view options works as long as I don't restart. It's just weird that it's doing this. It won't save my preferences. I'd prefer NOT to have to do this every time I reboot and open up any new folder/device.
Upgrade my eye!

Try replacing your com.apple.finder.plist file
Find it in ~/Library/Preferences
Move it to the Desktop
Hope that works, and maybe someone will weigh in on your other question...

Open Finder... goto preferences and set the view options... they are global and will update everything as you wish. Try it...up there with the bEst of the bEst....

Sorry, but post #6 is not accurate. You cannot set view options from Preferences. <--That is a specific menu item: Finder > Preferences ...so maybe it's just a terminology mistake.
View Options are set in Show View Options, in the View Menu, or command-J. And, they are not necessarily global. If you click Use as Defaults after you get it set the way you want, then those settings become global. Otherwise, only enclosed folders will conform to those choices.
