    Every time I go to use a program in the dock it is gone. It has happened several times now. Icons I have put in there eventually are not there after a while. Its only one or two and I don't notice them gone until I need to use it. What is going on here?

    Maybe a broken Dock pref?

    Try ditching it: (drag to drash, don't empty it already)
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist

    Drag it to the trash, then force quit the finder. It doesn't matter if you empty the trash because it will just generate a new one when the finder relaunches. You'll just have to add all your icons again. You may want to screen grab your dock layout first.
