    I downloaded this app called dock spaces a few days ago. it looked cool and i tried some stuff with it. after a while i thought it was useless and didnt really add anything.. so i wanted my dock back to normal. i thought that by deleting the app from my computer the dock would go back to normal. but it hasnt. ive lost my nice shiny mirror dock form leopard. how do i get my dock back to the way it was when i installed leopard?

    Quit the program Dockspaces and make sure it's not set to start up at login.

    Delete the file and then open the terminal and type killall Dock.

    Make sure to capitalize the word Dock.

    ETA: In case you do not know where the .plist file is located, you can find it in User > Library > Preferences
