    If I do a clean install and restore from TM, will I have to enter all my apps' serial numbers? This is the only thing holding me back from doing a clean install on my 3 year old iMac. Does it even matter? I didn't do a clean install from Tiger to Leopard and it worked perfectly. I just thought that starting from scratch would make the computer zoom like it used to. Thanks!!

    It shouldn't. A TM restore will copy over the application preferences and such where that information is stored.
