    I had ILife and Imovie and everything was working fine, but I accidently deleted the Imovie application and now I can't get it back. I do not have the disc I used to get it anymore, and can't get that back and I really can't afford to pay for it again.

    Please advise me on what to do, if I can do anything. Thanks, much appreciated. :)

    Do you have the gray restore discs that came with your machine?

    What about a Time Machine backup?

    No I don't :( I have a backup hardrive, but Imovie isn't in it.

    Then you'll need that disk. Sorry.

    (It's not in the trash, is it?)

    No it's not :( I still have Garageband and iPhoto and everything, is there anywhere I can purchase just Imovie on it's own? I'm running a PowerPC G4 10.4.11.

    Also, is there anywhere I can buy Imovie and set it up straight after buying it, or would they send me a disc? and where can I? Thanks, I'd appreciate your advice.

    You don't have the disks that came with your computer? They should have iLife on, albeit perhaps not the same version you were running before.

    Imovie not included in ILife?

    I accidently deleted the Imovie application so I got the ILife installer disk again. It says it has Imovie on it but as soon as the installation starts, it installs Iphoto, itunes, garageband, everything BUT Imovie. It never even mentions it. It only installs the ones I already have. Please help. Thanks.

    Don't post duplicate threads.

    There are install options to choose which apps get installed, somehow, iMovie is not selected. When you run the installer again, look for an Options button.

    I didn't mean to post "duplicate threads" I missed out something in the last thread and couldn't edit it, and I also posted it in the wrong section :) But sorry.

    and thanks, but I can't find any option button anywhere.
