    Okay,im having quite an issue here. a friend of mine asked me if i could help fix his mac, his sister got at it and somehow managed to delete the entire applications folder. its quite bad. the only thing i need right now though is the system prferences. is there any way of getting that? i have no access to any os x discs (not even the ones that come with the comp) and no access to any other macs. what do i do?

    any help would be amazingly appreciated....

    Preferences are usually made after an application opens, So I dont know how getting preferences would help your situation. Unfortunately os x doesnt have a revert to a time when it was working good like windows does.

    It's a long shot, but try downloading and reinstalling the relevant combo update. At a guess, it won't work, but it might be worth a try. Otherwise I'd start looking 'round for a friend with an OSX disc. :)
