I have a problem with dashboard. It won't get off the screen. Everytime I click the mouse it zooms in and out and I'm unable to click on anything else. I tried rebooting but it's still there.  It's literally taken over . Can anyone help?

    Hello,

     

    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, if you can, then open Terminal and copy paste the line in...

     

    To turn Dashboard off:

     

    defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean YES

     

    To turn Dashboard on:

     

    defaults write com.apple.dashboard mcx-disabled -boolean NO

     

    Reboot
