    finder icon?
    Now, lemme know if I'm wrong, but has there always been 3 vertical stripes going through the finder icon? I don't remember it and am hoping it's not a bad sign!

    You mean in the dock? The only vertical line I have is the one that goes between the eyes and down to make the nose.

    To take a picture of a the Dock, press Command-Shift-4, then press the Space bar. Move the pointer over the area you want so that it's highlighted, then click. If you decide you want to drag to select the area, press the Space bar again. lol...

    Interesting, that icon is actually an 'alias' which points to your home directory.

    Unless there is some other really strange activity happening on your Mac, it's safe to say that these lines don't pose any threat to your system.

    Just for your info I've included a link which explains how you can modify icons:
