    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.
