Hi all, I'm using a MBP CD 2.16 running 10.4.10. After making no modifications or the like last night, when I booted my computer this morning, I was greeted with nothing more than my desktop picture, and the spotlight icon section of the menu bar. The menu bar is otherwise not there, my icons and files are not there, nor is the dock. I can't load anything. I have tried booting from disc and repairing permissions, but that did nothing. I have also unplugged all peripherals in case they were causing the problem...but still nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks, Cliff.
