I'm embarrassed (but relieved). I thought it should be stand alone in Finder. It was, in fact, in the Applications folder. Thanks so much. What could make it disappear from the dock for the first time in 6 years?

You can drag it from the Applications folder to the Dock & drop it, & you can remove things from the Dock by simply dragging them off the Dock... Poof!
Once in the Dock Right Click and check keep in Dock if you always want it there.

I just noticed that I lost my access to my iTunes "purchased" music library. I can access the store but now the only place I see my downloaded music file is by individual song in the applications folder. How can I recover my downloaded music as a file? I used to be able to see all my purchased music, including album cover etc. on one page. Can you help?

Wow, I've never bought any Music from the iTunes store, but I was thinking since we had this reboot & problem...
Could be many things, we should start with this...
"Try Disk Utility
1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
3. Click the First Aid tab.
4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
(Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)

I plugged my ipod in and transferred the purchased file from it to the iTunes file. That was available because of a synch I did a week ago when I charged my ipod. I lost my record of discs that I made from the purchased file but I feel confident those iTunes files exist somewhere on the computer. Thanks again for your excellent problem-solving.
