    My preferences on occasion will not open. this happens frequently and some times I reboot ore hn once. Using snow leopard 10.6.4. How do clear this up?? I have used disk verify and still no luck. Is there a way to install snow leopard without disturbing rest of system.

    According to article I think I read that all programs will have to be installed. Am I wrong?

    No. If you do an "upgrade" installation, only system files will be replaced meaning that all your apps and files will remain the same

    If you have a Time Machine backup, then yes, you can restore everything from it
