    Hi,

    I'm planning to format my mac book pro, as in, reinstalling leopard and erasing all the files and applications since my mac is getting really slow. I was wondering if the applications ( adobe photoshop, illustrator, final cut etc.) that i backed-up in my time machine will still work on a formatted mac.

    Thank you for your time. :)

    If you restore from your Time Machine yes, but no you cannot just run them from a time machine backup and expect them to work.
