Hey guys:

Every time I shut off the computer and re-start it, due to application install, etc. stuff gets restored to facroty defaults, I don't understand why this is happening.

A) Widgets: I have a Bible and Dopple widget on there that has now dissappeared, I saved the downloaded widgets to a folder, but now it says it can't install them due because it can't doesn't know if it is a valid install.

B) Dock: It keeps resetting the dock to factory size, I think it is too big and I keep having to reduce it.

These are small inconviences but if I could get them squared away it would be awesome.

QUOTE Thanks
