    Not true. However, there is basically zero chance that you will get one. From what you've described, it sounds like someone is taking over your computer.

    True, therefore there is basically zero chance that you will get one.

    Reinstall from Install Disk 1.

    That? If so, there is something wrong with your computer, most likely hardware related.

    the dock is big because you deleted the "config" file for it, so it reverted to its original size
