    I installed a program to remove running application's icons from my dock, "DockDodger", and I have been having problems with my iMac ever since. Originally, my menu bar had completely disappeared. I bought OS X 10.7 hoping it would restore my operating system, and it kinda worked. My menu bar is back, but when I have multiple applications open the (command + tab) feature does not recognize all of the running applications. I think the dock app really messed up something fundamental in my system and I need to find it and restore it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Additionally, Adobe Creative Suite no longer runs. I do not know if that is a byproduct of OS X Lion or my other host of issues. Thanks again.

    I've realized that when certain applications are open the menu bar will not correspond with the application. (ie. I will have a word processor active and the menu bar will be for safari.) It's pretty [messed] up.

    I don't mean to be unsympathetic, but these little programs that make OS X do things that it wasn't designed to do often cause instabilities. In fact, my observation is that if the system is crashing - and it's not hardware related - it is almost always due one of these OS enhancements/optimizers.

    You have a couple of options here.

    1) Contact the makers of DockDodger. Perhaps there is an update and once it's working properly the rest of the OS may settle down. Until the next OS update, that is.
    2) Remove DockDodger, and reinstall the OS from your installation disks.

    Luck.
