    after installing candybar and resetting my computer so that he new icons would take effect, all the times in the menu bar at the top my screen have dissapeared such as the time, volume control. spotlight, airport, user name. I have removed candybar and reset and they are still gone. Has this ever happened before that you are aware of? I am using OSX 10.4.5. Also, when I try to open system preferences and try to go to sounds, the system preferences window crashes and I get the crash message "the application system preferences quit unexpectedly. I have reset my computer a few times to see if that would fix it and it didn't. I have spotlighted my system to find anything to do with candybar and deleted all of it but it still didn't bring back the items. can anyone think of anything??

    Now you see why you shouldn't screw with the OS X interface. It will only cause you problems!

    If you have another Mac with the same exact OS X (including updates) then you may be able to get away with going to the PrivateFrameworks folder which is in the HD/System/Library/ and then look for a framework called BezelServices.framework

    If you don't have another Mac, but the Mac you do have has Mac OS X.4.5 on it, I can send you that file. This WILL NOT be some type of malicious code. I'm not there to screw someone over, but rather to help someone. Just let me know and I'll be here to help you.

    thanks for the offer but I already did an archive install this afternoon and that fixed everything. Thanks for the offer though.
