I've read all the "how-to" solutions on the icon/dock problem. However, when I drag the applications folder to the dock area it does not stay there. When I double-click and application, then ctrl-click the apps icon, I do not get the "keep in dock" option choice -- only "open at login" and "show in finder".

I'm new to Mac, but this seems to be a deeper problem...

From the Desktop/Finder:

Go > Home > Library > Preferences > find any files named like com.apple.dock.plist and move them to the trash, then restart. OS X should rebuild this file and allow you to customize the dock as you wish.

Once you have done this also be sure to run Software Update and install any updates listed.
