    Hello MacRumors Forums.
    I had a problem with my computer, and decided to format my MBP and reinstall Mac OS X Lion.
    After installing, I noticed that there was no longer iLife in my Applications folder. Has something happened?
    Does anybody have a issue like me? Does anybody know the solution?

    iLife is not a part of OS X - you need to either reinstall it from the discs that came with the computer, or redownload it from the Mac App Store.

    If you bought your MBP with Lion preinstalled, iLife is to be downloaded from the App Store. If you have an earlier version you must install it from a DVD that came with your computer.

    Which one; the Applications Install CD, or the Mac OS X Install CD?
    Also, if it's the Applications CD, do you have to just install all of the things?

    Application's DVD, since iLife is not part of Mac OS X, for which the Mac OS X DVD is responsible, and no, you can select what to install.

    Can you tell me for reference, what the CPU Help Files are?

    I believe that's your computer's help manual in digital form.
