Color preferences disappear

The color preferences on ACT! 2011 Pro occasionally revert to the default preferences.  I then need to reset them all.  This last happened when I shut down my desktop PC and restarted it.  The menu on the lower left of the ACT! screen also reverted to default (that actually happens more frequently).


This has happened a few times - it's mostly a pain in the neck to restore my preferences.  Is there a way to backup these preferences and restore them when this happens?

Re: Color preferences disappear

Hello Susan,
This may be due to a damaged ACT! preferences file. Follow the steps in the bottom portion of this KB article to manually rebuild the preferences file:
