    What Mac OS X version do you use?
    And what did you do, that this could happen, or did it appear suddenly?

    Repair Permissions, or remove the 'dock.plist' file (usually called 'com.apple.dock.plist') from your User's Preferences Folder (~/Library/Preferences).

    i did delete the dock.plist and it's working now. altho i have to reconfigure the dock but it's ok but i was just wondering what could of caused it? could it be parallels desktop? because it did add another folder for easy access to my windows xp program files
