Question: Icons missing

With the update of iOS 10.13.1 , the applications, as well as many others has had the icon not present. The application itself works just fine and I know there is no malware or viruses present since I have already checked.

This has been happening multiple times as I've fixed it by removing from my doc then putting them back as they were before.

What is exactly happening with my computer? Why does this happen? and what can I do to prevent this from happening any more in the future?

Try doing a Dock restart using the following Terminal command:

killall Dock

Log out/in and test. If that doesn’t work, you need to look in your user Library/Application Support/Dock for the .db. Use the Finder “Go To Folder” command. Enter ~/Library/Applications Support/Dock. Move the .db to your desktop.

Then try a dock reset.

Applications/Utilities/Terminal enter the command

killall Dock

Log out/in test. If it works okay, delete the .db from the desktop.

If the Dock is the same, return the .db to where you got them from, overwriting the newer ones.

If you prefer to make your user library permanently visible, go to Finder and select your user/home folder. With that Finder window as the front window, either select Finder/View/Show View options or go command - J. When the View options opens, check ’Show Library Folder’. That should make your user library folder visible in your user/home folder. Learned from leonie.
