from a complete reformat, you lose everything. from an archive and install, i dont think you lose anything. if your doing a complete reformat, save your entire documents folder, your iphoto library, your itunes library, and any favorites that you might have on safari/firefox. if you use offce/entourage, save the microsoft user data folder under documents, this will save all your emails

Unfortunately, I am not going to risk a complete reformat. I shall try an archive and install. Hopefully, with any luck, it should resolve my problem.

BTW: Just added you a reputation comment.
