    I've got a Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard installed, but it has been going sort of sluggish lately so I've decided to do a clean reinstall of Snow Leopard to try and improve things. I've got an up-to-date backup with Time Machine to my Time Capsule. When I do a clean install of Snow Leopard, will I be able to easily restore the files that I want to keep and the applications that I want to put back on my system (with their settings)?

    Yes. At the end of the installation, it will ask if you liked to transfer data from Time Machine backup. Select yes and select the TC. You may want to connect it directly to the Mac as it takes quite a long time to transfer data over wireless network.
