    Apparently you tampered with the Dock.app in CoreServices to try to change the dock appearance. The full path to the dock is:

     

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app

     

    If you have a backup of the original Dock.app I suggest you replace the current one with the original. Drag the "damaged" one to your trash and then drag the good replacement into the CoreServices file.  Then killall Dock.

     

    Note, I am assuming you got that stuff from this web site.  That page has a link to download the original images that presumably you replaced in your Dock.app.  So if you don't have a backup try restoring your Dock.app with the images provided on that page and follow the instructions there on how to do it.  Good luck.
