So, after reading this post: Is Cairo- Dock safe?
I decided to install AWN
(Avant Window Navigator). Having toyed around with it for a few minutes I decided to make it automatically started on logon. But I seem to have been experiencing some random freeze afterwards and want to keep it from getting automatically started. I've removed it from Control Center > Sessions > Startup Programs
but the darn dock won't go away. Mint always starts it everytime I log on even though it's no longer on the startup list. What should I do to fix this?
