    Ok so i was trying to change my dock theme, and i followed all of the instructions of replacing my dock files and everything. Now, there is nothing on my computer. It is just a blank white screen with no dock anywhere. I've tried resetting it many times and i've tried switching out the dock options, so its not that. I cannot change my background also. I've also tried to go in terminal and do "killall Dock" a few times and that didnt work. Any suggestions?

    This is what it looks like:

    Because the dock controls the wallpaper, you get the grey screen... so you must have not followed the directions correctly because it looks to me like your dock.app just isn't opening (which is why you have no wallpaper or dock)

    Go back in finder and locate the dock.app in your HD/ System/ Library/ CoreServices folder and double click the dock icon. If that doesn't work, replace your theme files with the original files then reopen the dock.app
