I haven't done a fresh install in years. I've been having some trouble, including freezing apps (see this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=532398) and other flakiness. I've heard some people argue that a fresh install won't solve most problems, but I've heard others say it can help a lot. I was thinking of doing a fresh Leopard install, and when installing my apps, not transferring over the prefs, in case they're corrupted or whatever. Is this a waste of time? Also, if I do a clean install, is it better to use the combo updaters, or update Leopard via Software Update? Thanks!
