Yesterday using my imac (4 years old) was running fine and my dock was showing and i can open up my applications.

Today i started my computer and i noticed that my desktop wallpaper was slightly pixelated, my dock had dissapeared, the 2 side buttons on my mouse are not working, when i open up my hard drive my document file are missing and it's contents, i can't shut my computer down, or restart it.

What i have done already is to restart the computer, switched the main plug off and left it for a considerable amount of time, but it is still the same problem.

the applications which do run are Firefox and Itunes.

what is the problem? :(

Seems like you solved one thing at least! You could try logging in under a different user account to see if the strange behavior persists.
