    I have an ibook 12" that came with Appleworks. When I used the disks to reinstall the software and OS a couple weeks after I received it Appleworks disappeared. I can't seem to find it on any of the disks. Has anyone had any experience with this? Thanks

    Lay the disks that came with your iBook out and see if there's one called Software Restore or something. :)

    Yet another clean install victim. :rolleyes:

    (Sorry, but I do have very limited sympathy for people who get themselves in trouble with this.)

    Well, I wonder why you thought a clean install was required.

    Clean installs are your friend. I love them, they pretty much ensure a smooth-running system. Of course, each to their own and there are costs and benefits for both.

    Now, teerexx52, did you find it one the Software Restore disk(s)?

    I await an explanation of the benefits of a clean install over, say, a good diagnostic effort. The risks are pretty freaking obvious.

    Yes, I found the restore disks but Appleworks is not on them.
