Hey guys, So my MBP is running like extremely slow and I am having problems up and the OS. I am going to take my computer into Apple, but the times I have taken my computer in before, they have suggested I do a clean install before they help me. So I have decided to do a clean install and see if that will help. If not I'll take it in, and hopefully Apple won't be able to deny me support. I do have a question though. I have a lot of software that has been registered with activation codes and what not, and I am wondering how I can do an erase and install and still get that software back. Just to list my system: MBP C2D (Second version since intel) 2 GB ram 160 GB Hard Drive Software worried about: Final Cut Studio Final Draft Photoshop Illustrator After Effecrts Toast Office 08 There are many more, but those are examples. Any help or thoughts.
