    Things are running peculiarly slow on my powerbook.
    I was curious if I reformat will things run quicker?
    I have not done so since purchased 3 years ago.
    I have plenty of free space on the hd and don't think that is the issue.
    Also, will I have any issues with my apps registration?
    I do not have the info any more and would be a huge loss.

    If this has been covered before I apologize please redirect me.

    apps that require a serial will have to be reinstalled and registered. If you have the serial, reregistering should not be a problem. If you dont, when you run the installer disks, some may be reduced to limited functionality or demo without a serial. In particular, what apps?

    They are adobe apps. Will the speed issue be resolved?
