Try this first. Remove the User/Library?Preferences folder (you can put it back afterwords) to the desktop, and restart. If this fixes the problem, you can toss the new folder, move this one back, and with a little effort, probably determine the bad .plist filePB G4, Mac OS X (10.5), You can clone from any chip type to the same chip type, safely.

Moved preferences and Leopard opened fine (all Icons back on the desktop) and finder working ... how do I decide what preferences files to copy back? do I need to log out each time to test? or do I have to close down? Sound v boring?
And what preference sticks all the desktop back in its new folder?

Then, when you figure out which 10 contains it, decide if you'd mind losing all of them or not. You could isolate the specific one, by reinstalling half each time.
