    Hi,

    My dad bought a macbook pro a few days ago and he deleted some things; iphoto and photobooth to name a few.

    I told him to go to system preferences and he gets an error message saying something about 'system preferences may be damaged'
    And it does not open.

    Is there a way to fix this? He has the snow leopard installation disks etc.

    Its just when you say he deleted iPhoto and Photobooth to name a few that I worry just what else has been deleted.

    Back up any data he has collected in these few days and re-install Snow Leopard. Don't let him delete stuff until you've checked its OK.
