    Hi guys,

    Firstly I'm new to the forum so sorry if I posted in the wrong location!

    I have a bit of a problem with my dock. Ages ago I was fooling around and I downloaded some dock modifier. I made my dock look like this:

    And I have no idea how to switch it back to normal. I am on Snow Leopard and have tried replacing all of the current dock resource files with the default dock resource files and using command 'killall Dock' but to no avail.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    You turned your dock from 3D to 2D to turn in back open terminal and type in the following command.

    defaults write no-glass -boolean NO

    then kill the dock. Once restarted it should go back to the normal 3D dock.

    Man, I've read that so many times! I always advise leaving well enough alone.
