    I have a problem concerning the dock, it does not show up and i dont even have it one automatically hide and show. This happened when i removed the Windows Bootcamp partition off of my Mac. Now I cant even see the dock and have to use finder to open all of my programs and load files and none of the programs minimize. I also think there is a virus on my mac because after i removed the partition, I had 22 gigs free. The next day, i only had 11 and now i only have 10. Thanks for the help.

    open Terminal (its under utitlities, or spotlight for terminal application) and type the following:

    kill all Dock

    later, check HDD > System > Library > CoreServices and look for "Dock" there.

    Restarting the dock's a good idea - if that doesn't work, restart your Mac. It's a pain, but it can be a very easy fix.

    this is what i get in terminal
    Code:
    arturo-salinas-computer:~ salinas$ kill all Dock
    -bash: kill: all: arguments must be process or job IDs
    -bash: kill: Dock: arguments must be process or job IDs
    
    I also cannot find dock in HDD > System > Library > CoreServices I have tried restarting the mac, it still does not show up. This is for all users btw.

    The command is "killall Dock" - no space between kill and all.
