my dock currently looks like that.. and the areas where there are spaces on the side are my finder and trash. i know theres another finder icon but it's bugging me because the one right next to it is the finder but there isn't any icon.
i messed everything up with the candybar thing is there any way i can just delete everything and restore my dock to the way it was when i first bought it?!

I have not tried it but you might be able to use Time Machine and restore from an earlier
point.

First, uninstall CandyBar. Then trash your dock.plist file. You should be good.

This is the kind of problem I warn people about who ask how to customize icons, etc. Usually they get rude and resort to name calling. "If you can't help, then why did you reply?" Well, that warning is helpful. It might prevent a headache like this!
