    I recently gave my ibook G4 to my Mom. I was trying to clean off all my personal information and I think I accidentally deleted files that the operating system,Tiger, OS X, needs to download files. I don't have the instillation disk that came with the laptop when I initially purchases it. If I went ahead and purchased Leopard would this resolve the downloads issue I am having? What do you think...

    You need to give us more info about what you're specifically trying to do that isn't working, and tell us exactly what error you're seeing. Are you saying you could connect to the net when the computer was at your place, and now that it's at your mom's place it can't get on the net anymore?

    If you buy leopard, you can do a clean install, that mean it will work just ok.

    I can connect to the internet just fine. But say someone e-mails me a document. When the document downloads it will not open the document and if I try to open the document in word, and it is a word document and I have word on my computer, Its formatting is crazy. If I try to download an online player, it will not download any online players, and just bounces me back to the previous screen. Does not give an error message. The problem is solely with anything I try to download. I know I deleted a bunch of stuff from the computer. I am wondering if I accidentally deleted files from the computer that it needs to actually download information from the internet, and if so would installing leopard fix this problem. I did not have this problem before I deleted files from the computer.
