    I tried installing a plug in for logic and the install seemed to error. I forced it to quit, then my mac was running real slow so I restarted it.

    After the restart my dock had moved the the right and I dont mean on the right of the screen, its in the bottom right corner. I've gone through some of my files and found some bits I think had appeared there from the install and restarted it again.

    The problem hadnt changed at all, I tried changing everything in the dock prefs. Everything acts normally except when I put the dock at the bottom.

    Any ideas?

    Restart Finder? (force quit finder)

    Trash Dock preferences (Library>Preferences>com.apple.dock.plist).

    Placement somewhere other than the center of a screen edge is an option, but it's not available through the default settings. Try TinkerTool...head into the Dock placement settings there and toggle a few things to see if you can get things straightened out.

    Otherwise, you can probably just drag the file com.apple.Dock.plist from <your user name>/Library/Preferences to your Desktop and then relaunch your Dock using TinkerTool. But be sure to keep a record of what your Dock looked like and what apps were on it, because this will revert it to the default.
