    Hey Guys,

    I was trashing a few freeware apps today and I think I must have thrown preview.app in the trash too by accident.

    if possible, can anyone send it to me (by email; i think it's too big to post here, and I cant seem to find it available to download online..)

    my emai addy is: asif786 [at] gmail.com

    Thanks :)

    All you need to do is to insert of MacOS X distribution disk and reinstall the OS. Nothing will be lost, but your deleted apps will be restored.

    Yeah, but Preview.app is the only one I wanted. The others were things like Stattoo, Konfabulator etc which I didnt want.

    Besides, I have no idea where my disks are ;) :)

    What you needed was Pacifist.

    No one should be forced to re-install all of Mac OS X because of problems with a small app like Preview. ;)

    Wow, funny this should happen to someone else just as it was happening to me.

    My Internet Connection application has become corrupted. It just has the simple application logo and wont run. This is preventing me from setting up somethings I need to configure. Any way that someone could send it to me (10.3.6). My address is sgarringer [at] gmail.com

    I appreciate it very much.

    You are not actually reinstalling the OS. You are reinstalling a few missing files. To me it makes a lot more sense just to stick the CD in and let things go than to download a utility, stick the CD in and search file by file for what you want, and then extract it.

    For everyone who needs Preview, here it is in a zip file. Much easier than sending e-mails everywhere... (if you can't see the file, it's still uploading so wait a bit)

    If you need any other apps I'll upload them. I only have Leopard versions though.

    people who have lost Preview are you sure it wasnt just dragged off your Dock? check the Applications stack on the right of the Dock, open Finder and click on Applications or search for in Spotlight.

    ok mate just checking, could be useful for future members searching this thread which has been done.

    i have Snow Leopard so i cant give you mine. but you said you have 10.5.8? that is Leopard so the Preview linked from Leopard should work, unless you have a previous version and Preview was updated.
