I just installed a couple of apps, Disk Diet and Memory Free, ran them, now loads of my progams won't launch! Can I roll back to an earlier time for everything? I don't know what's been affected.

Macine type ? What OS are you running atm ?? Have you trashed the offending Apps first ? Repair Permissions via Disk Utility ??

Its better to find the problem instead of just "rolling back" because once you do and you continue on without the knowledge of what caused it, the problem will arise again.

Just saying

Cheers

MacBook Pro - 10.6.8
Trashed apps (work OK on the MacBook Air) Just ran a permissions repair, but Office etc won't run. I have a Time Machine running in the background.
