Keyboard settings

Has anyone thoughts on why my Keyboard preference is lost when Logging out/ back in ? All settings are lost and the machine returns to "US" only. Nothing else seems to change in pref only this.  It's a frustrating issue !!

Do a backup.
Quit System Preferences.
Go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J.  When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder.  Select Preferences/com.apple.systempreferences.plist. Move the .plist to your desktop.
Restart, open the application and test. If it works okay, delete the plist from the desktop.
If the application is the same, return the .plist to where you got it from, overwriting the newer one.
You may have to reset some other preferences.
Thanks to leonie for some information contained in this.
