    Yes, and what's even more odd is that if I option+tab, the Finder does not even show up!! If I click on the desktop the menu-bar does change to Finder and the Force Quit menu shows Finder as functioning properly. All I did was drag a picture to the trash can :confused:

    Funny... had the exact problem some days ago. However, in my case a restart fixed it.

    In your user's Preferences folder (located in your user's library folder) there's a file called, com.apple.dock.plist ...Try moving that to your desktop and logging out and then back in. This will reset your dock to default settings, and hopefully fix the problem.

    And finally, if everything's OK, you can trash the file now on your desktop.
