    if it just a mistake of installing apps, then why you don't try to uninstall the apps ?

    CD and USB? simply choose one of it, both of them are possible to used for reInstalling your OS X Mountain Lion,

    You can also boot your Mac holding R key and restore it from apple.

    What does that have to do with the price of toast?

    Anyway just press "R" while turning on your Mac (before the chime).

    I think you are confused. You don't need to bring your computer to Apple at all. When you hold R while booting, it brings up the recovery system. From there, you can download a fresh copy of ML to install. You don't have to physically go anywhere.

    Restore from Apple. Means you can restore/download your OS from Apple's servers, by doing what was mentioned in post #3 :)
