My dashboard widgets froze -- open on screen.  I had to close each widget.  Now I now longer have one-click pop up of my selected widgets.  I get a beep when I click the dashboard icon.  I have to click the plus sign and open individual widgets.   What happened?  Can I get my simple dashboard back?

    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, move this file to the Desktop...

     

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dashboard.plist


    PS. Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive

     

    Reboot, test again.
