It was probably from your laptop manufacturer. There is a better solution that people that customize desktops love to use and it's free. Give Rocketdock a try. It has a whole community with custom icons etc...
well, i downloaded object dock, so thats okay, but now the pop ups that inform you about caps lock and the volume arent there etheir. ive been trying to use the disk for application, but its not working. it installs to run it, but it dosent run. please help.
You could always run a quick integrity check.
Start>>Type "cmd", right click to run as admin>>type "sfc /scannow"
Windows will automatically fix any violations.
Not entirely sure if it will help here, but worth a try.
