Ok, I have bought this MBP 2nd hand that came with freshly installed OSx 10.8.

Was having problem with Wifi, it was very slow in my Uni Wifi. So upgraded to 10.8.2 and the WiFi became much faster.

But after upgrading, the application folder and the download folder that sits on the dock lost its default "A" symbol and "down-arrow' symbol and looks like normal folders. Is it common and can it be fixed? I really liked the original folders with symbols. Please help.

Also using remote desktop that comes with Office 2011 for Mac to connect to my office PC. It does the job, but I hate that it chops off 30% of the PC screen without any option to scroll on that side. I have stuffs on that part that I need to access.

I know I can access it through explorer, but was wondering Is there a better alternative to do remote desktop from my MBP to windows PC?

Really appreciate any help.

As far as the folders in the dock are concerned. CTRL-click on them and then change their appearance to stack or drawer or whatever you want.

For RDP, I'm using Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac | Office For Mac and that works pretty well. If that's the one you're having problems with, try CoRD: Remote Desktop for Mac OS X
