Dock problem

For some reason my dock won't load when I log in to my desktop. It won't even let me send an error report to dell. Any help?

.........restore computer?

nah there are still other suggestions . Go to your msconfig (system configuration) and make sure the dock is loaded. Make sure the service is started. Make sure the process for it is running in the task manager

If the process isn't in the process manager, then the computer isn't running the program as we speak. Check to make sure (in any way you can) that the dock is enabled. Check the services, msconfig, startup folder in start menu, etc.

It seems that problems like this occur a lot on oem software >.<

I just got a dell desktop =P so I now understand why that dock is so awesome lol.
The dock has an autohide feature. Make sure that feature isn't turned on.
Besides that, you can run the dock from the start menu. If it doesn't run from there, right click and run as administrator.

The worse case senario, create another user account. If the issue deals with a user profile error, that would be reset.

Cheers~!
