    Hey everyone,

    I have this strange problem that started happening recently.Icons in my dock and application switch have become blurry. In fact, one of them simply doesn't appear.

    When I open the dashboard, it lags and stutters its way in.

    Any ideas what on earth is going on?

    Repair Permissions in Disk Utility and reboot. If that doesn't work, delete "com.apple.Dock.plist" and reboot again.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, Archy. I will try that.

    Yesterday, perhaps half an hour after I posted, the icons all became sharp and normal again, though the wow icon is still gone. Last night it went in hibernation after the battery went flat, and the blur is back.
