Dock icons showing up....

Hi,

For the last couple of days suddenly three icons show up in my dock; Mission Control, App Store, and FaceTime.

I remove them, but they show up (consistently) again when I reboot

Any takers?

/Bo

Bo,

You might check your System Preferences/Users & Groups to ensure these apps are not present in your "Login Items".

Hi,

Checked out the login items, and there is nothing out of the ordinary, and the icons still show up. This is really driving me crazy. I have a cleaned up Dock, and I do not want these three icons. Every time I remove them from dock, they come back at next reboot

Hi,

I installed ESET Security a few days ago, and when I uninstalled it, the issue with the icons went away. It somehow must have to do with ESET...

Thanks for posting the "solution", Bo. Indeed I would not have divined upon it.

Like you, I am at a loss to explain the cause/effect relationship.

Still, you might drop the developer a line just to see if this issue makes sense to him. Alas, I know not of ESET.
