I don't know what happened there. It is possible that you or someone else moved it to a location other than the applications folder. If you move it out of the dock then, it will get erased (I think). Do you have an iLife disk? Try reinstalling it.

if u dont have the ilife disks, just borow a friends mac if any of your friends have another mac, and copy the garageband icon from their applications folder and move it onto your computer via memory card, usb, or any other means andit should work fine. thats what i did when this happened to me.

would it be? its just like a shortcut on a windows computer.
if its installed on your computer and u loose the icon to open it, it shouldnt be illegal to just get a copy of the shortcut would it? thats basically whats going on.

That's odd that it just disappeared. Do you use Time Machine? You could just go back and get the file from your application folder on the external hard drive using that.
