    After having tweaked around with icons etc my dock has shut down...
    im running os x 10.5.5 and candybar 3.1.2..
    atm i can't rightclick (or ctrl click) on my dock nor remove icons from it.. when i puff a icon on the desktop the dock reloads and still shows the old icons..
    i have been surfing around the net after some advise and found the ones where i have to delete/replace the com.apple.dock.plist and do the killall Dock..
    but that only removes the icon graphic for finder and trash - still can't rightclick or remove icons...
    is there someway to reset it all and go back to the basic dock that i get after a clean install?
    would be pleased if a reinstallation could be avoided..
    btw the small shining triangles that shows which progams i have running - they aint shining no more..

    you could always restore from a time machine backup an hour or so before you messed it up. Boot from the install CD and there is an option in the menu bar.

    Try going into Terminal and typing killall "Dock" (be sure to have quotes around Dock).
