Customer Question
OS X for four years...
OS X for four years and the dock has never regularly come up. It is infuriating and I've just about had it. Its enough to get rid of the damn computer. Are there any unique solutions that perhaps I have not tried??

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
