    It's weird. About after I made a new profile user account for Mac OSX, my Dashboard suddenly quit on me. I could use Dashboard for other user profiles, but not mine, which is the administrator....

    I can't add widgets, I can't subtract them.. When I open up Dashboard, nothing pops up and only the dimming screen enables and the little logo in the corner pops up (which happens when you usually activate Dashboard). But nothing else appears on-screen....

    Can anyone help me or does anyone know?

    Dashboard is managed by the Dock. If the Dashboard acts up, one way to force-reset it is to restart the Dock. There are two ways to do this:

    From Activity Monitor in your Utilities folder, select Dock and click the Quit Process (or similar) button.
    From the Terminal, type: killall -HUP Dock
