Remove All Icons From Dock

I don’t really use the dock that much, and so I get frustrated when I install programs and they add themselves automatically. I needed a way to remove all of the programs out of the dock (downloads, documents, etc will remain). This is what I came up with: run this applescript: quit application “Dock” use plist edit pro and edit this file: /Users/user/Library/Preferences/ delete all entries under persistent-apps save run this applescript: activate application “Dock” if that doesn’t work, try running the above applescript again to quit, and then to restart.
