    After trying to customize my icons with LiteIcon and CandyBar and everything, my dock refuses to show up, at all. When I go to Finder and then to Dock, it has the beach ball.

    When I try to go to the Applications folder, it has the beach ball.

    I've tried Terminal "killall Dock" but it doesn't appear to be a Dock problem, but rather an Application problem. Maybe even both.

    This is my first week using a mac, I don't know what to do. I'm currently repairing disk permissions?

    Help please.

    Do these apps need to be running to keep the dock in its modified state? If so have you tried either killing the processes of the applications you mentioned, disabling them at startup or even un-installing them and rebooting?

    I'm new to mac too sorry so aren't completely sure but if you're still stuck, that's where I'd start.
