I just got a new mac laptop couple days back , my first time using a mac machine. It came with OSX Tiger.

I have been playing around with it for few days but dunno what keeps resetting my settings in the OS, i.e my account settings in iChat, iMail ( including my emails!!) , my songs in iTunes and apps I install.. I keep losing them!!

how can I prevent this ?

How are you quitting programs? You need to quit properly, not through the dock, or else your prefs won't be saved.

Welcome to Mac-Forums, sangam.

Since this problem is across the board, just like Alexis above I am wondering how you actually quit your applications. Do you do a Command (or Apple key) + Q before leaving your applications?
