    The computer, Mac 10.4 Tiger, sent a message that my Startup drive is almost full. I tried to do the best to make more space available and inadvertently must have done something to the files of the Activity monitor. The next morning when I turned the computer on, it went up in smoke, i.e., disappeared and cannot be found in 'applications'.

    Do I have to reinstall? Can I reinstall just for the Activity Monitor or ?

    Isn't Activity Monitor usually in the Utilities folder?

    Yes, it is in the Utilities folder. I must have trashed it somehow. How to get it back?
    re-install it only? - ignore the missing piece and hope for the best?

    Do you have a backup?

    Use Pacifist along with the Install Disc to reinstall it. (Otherwise you'd have to do an Archive and Install which would be stupid just to get Activity Monitor back.) Pacifist allows you to install individual items from the Installer package found on the Install Disc.
