Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Does this issue occur every time you shut down / restart the computer?

Does this issue occur when you open a particular application? Or does it occur automatically even if you have quit / closed all applications?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

I googled it and found this but I don't understand how to perform this and if it is safe:Here's the solution. /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/XPCServices/com.apple.dock.extra .xpc/Contents/MacOS/com.apple.dock
and when you get to the level of the dock.app right click + select "Show Package Contents, then select contents+xpcservices+delete com.apple.dock.extra.xpc
Then goto activity monitor and forcequit the process, dump your trash and you are done!

Hi,

Can you tell me the exact version of OS X you are currently running, please?

Click the Apple logo in the menu bar at the top left of the screen

Select "About This Mac"

In the window that opens, look for the "Version" information. Please let me know what it says.

Thanks,

John
