I have just done a clean install of 10.5.8 on my imac G5. All went well except that "virtualpcnetworking1040.kext" is now in the dock. Can someone please tell me how to permanently remove this from the dock? Thanks!

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Trust you are not actually using VPC as it is a slow, slow old unreliable program, no longer supported by Microsoft. Drag it from the Dock to trash and empty, go into Go > Computer > HDD name > Users > Application Support and see if anything similarly named is there, and also check out Preferences under System > Library.
