Boot camp is free, it's part of OS X.

To set it up, go to Applications>Utilities>Boot Camp Assistant and run through the wizard.

Oh and please make sure you print the instructions of as they can be invaluable the first time you do it!

i didn't know it was possible to delete system apps without having to go through a few hoops on the way there, you shouldn't take computer advice from your mom anymore lol. it shouldn't have deleted and i cant think of a way to delete it. try the apple site on the download section, it might be there. good luck, i thought mw2 was a mac game too. i guess not

Boot Camp is not a program that runs Windows. It's a set of utilities to facilitate the installation of Windows. Check your Utilities folder in Applications => Utilities. There should be a program there called "Boot Camp Assistant". Be sure to read the directions that you'll be prompted to review.

If it's missing, you can recover it using your System Discs and a program called Pacifist.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
