    Yeah, it's not playing nice with your CoreServices. What version of Ape do you have installed?

    Have you installed ShapeShifter or any other products from the software vendor "Unsanity" or installed anything that changes the UI? Many of these will install APE (which I loathe).

    To check the installed version, fire up System Profiler and click on "Applications" under the Software heading. It should be in there, under APE or Application Enhancer or Unsanity something or other.

    Why do you not like application enhancer? Just curious as I use it, with clear dock, and would like to hear if there's something I should be aware of. Thanks

    Oh, I just don't trust it. It uses invisible daemons, leeches off CoreServices, basically acts like a DLL might in Windows. I haven't heard of too many problems with it, other than that in the past it ate up a good chunk of memory and "unexpectedly quit" off and on, that sort of thing. I'm just something of a purist and don't like things latching into my kernel. It's totally a personal opinion thing. Lots of people use it and swear by it, and that's cool with me.

    Definitely understand your point of view, and somewhat agree with it, but I guess I'm a sucker for fancy bells and whistles on OSX. Thanks for the post
