All of this is so foreign to me. I bought the new iMac thinking that it was the answer to my prayers. The closest thing to a perfect man as anyone could ever find: good looking, a smooth operator, free from any baggage (issues w/ other programs), plays nice with others (software that is), and had finally grown up into the world enough that I could start introducing him to my co-workers(crippling software for windows only). So I purchased Office:Mac w/ Virtual PC like a 'good little girl' for he(Mac) and I to play with and found out he doesn't play that game. Not the man I thought he was;SHOCKER!!! So what I need to know is do I need to do a new install for the whole system? If so, how? Do I remove programs? Heck I dont know you all are the experts so I've been reading. I never did a new custom install on one on my windows pcs before my brother did everthing. And I'm too shamful too ask him for help even if he knew.
