Hey. Alright well I have searched and searched this forum and many others and can't seem to find a solution. The Problem: Yesterday the dock just quit popping up, so I shutdown and restarted this morning. This morning same problem plus i can't select any files on my desktop. I can access stuff through finder but that's it. I have tried: restarting in safe mode - same problem fixed corrupted preference files - i'm sure it helped somehow fixed overlapped extent allocation files - again i'm sure it helped ran first aid to repair permissions - still same problem A few other thing i can't recall now My Specs: iBook G4 10.3.9 1.33Ghz PowerPC G4 256MB 55.76GB Harddrive 7GB Free If you can help on ANY WAY please do. I have tried everything I can find and think of. Oh yah, I don't currently have the OS disk. Thanks.
