    Hi,

    My kids were playing with my iMac (they love it) ;) and somehow my system preferences icon got deleted. Anyway to get this back? I check my applications folder and its gone.

    I have not check Trash though. In case its gone, any ideas how to get it back?

    @benzng: Is it deleted from the dock? Just open up your Applications folder, click and hold System Preferences and move it to the Dock.

    Copy a System Preference App from another machine and paste it to your Apps Folder. It should work fine.
