    I'm having some weird issues with the Dock. Currently, it's not allowing me to move, remove, or add applications to it. Everything is just static. Of course I can still launch things, but I can't remove anything. When I right click on the applications, it doesn't give me the option to "remove from dock." Is there a fix for this or will I need to nuke the machine and do a fresh install?

    You've tried the killall Dock command?
    (Open terminal, type in "killall Dock" without quotation marks)

    Run this in your Terminal:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock contents-immutable -bool false;killall Dock

    I did that and still nothing. The machine has also been restarted and turned on from a shut down and still nothing.

    That did the trick. Thank you.
