    As you can see, there are a bunch of Apps that I have completely lost. I did nothing - at one moment they were there, and then a little later I open up the Apps folder to see this. When I try to click on them, they all say that I can't open the file because it may be damaged or incomplete. I haven't installed anything recently, or messed with any settings. The programs are just gone. Can anyone clue me in on to what I need to do to fix this? I just got this computer last Tuesday, so I doubt I should be having any problems.

    The directory of the HD may be corrupted, try booting from the DVD Install disk, pull down the Utilities menu and run Disk Utility. Select your HD on the left and repair on the right.
    Are you sure you haven't moved those applications to the trash?
    If nothing else works, take it in to have a Genius look at it, you are still within the 14 day return period aren't you? If there is something wrong, they will replace the machine.
