    I bought a MacBook in november 07, Leopard pre-installed
    In June I had a clean install. Everything worked fine again until I mentioned that iMovie and iWeb were disappeared. Strange because Garageband and iPhoto both were in the application's folder (Even Spotlight couldn't find iMovie and iWeb so I think they're just not installed). Maybe this problem was solved by re-installing 'bundled software' so I did this. Now iMovie and iWeb also appear in the Application's folder, but I can't open the majority of my applications! When I trie, there comes the message 'application ... quit unexpectedly'.
    Programmes affected: Mail, iChat, iWork, iLife,..
    but unaffected: Safari, Activity Monitor, Preview, AdressBook, iTunes,Quicktime ... and all programmes not from Apple

    What should I do??? :confused: Restart didn't help.. Maybe restart from TimeMachine disk? But then I've still the problem that my iLife problem isn't solve and I will lose all my work from today and yesterday...

    During the clean install, you had an opportunity to pick OS only or OS and applications. I would think you can pop in the Leopard disk and bring back imovie and iweb. For me, I was asked to put in the second Leopard disk during the reinstall.
