    The Preferences folder holds plist files. When the associated app is opened, a new plist will be made if there isn't one. Seems unrelated to the sluggishness you're experiencing.

    Seems a good moment to remind anyone who doesn't already have a backup to make one now - it tends to reduce the likelihood of this sort of "oops I deleted [....], please help" problems.
