Ever since the java update that I installed (on my C2D 1.83 Mac Mini, 10.5.2) via software update a day or two ago, my dashboard has been messed up. Simply put, dashboard loads, but a lot of widgets within it don't seem to load up (or don't load properly). I can't say there is a 100% causal relationship between the Java update and the dashboard problem - but it's pretty obvious to me what is going on. How do I fix the problem or uninstall Java? Rant: AAPL>MSFT... but they really ought to test things out before they stick them in software update. If java really killed my dashboard, they just pulled a microsoft big-time.
