Hey everyone,

I'm having a problem with my mac that the OS was not installed properly thus a select number of programs are not working properly or not at all. The biggest one being the installer. If someone would be able to upload a copy of there installer that would be great. Thanks.

Why don't you just reinstall the operating system and save yourself some hassle?

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!

how do you know the OS was installed improperly?

what are the syptoms (besides the ambiguous "select number of programs are not working properly or not at all.")?

I would repair permissions and then down load and install the combo update of whatever version of the OS you are running. Then do another repair permissions.

Listen, I cannot believe you have the Terminal missing from a working OS X system. And what do you mean by the Installer? Installer of what?

And no I will not uploading anything here.

Yeah, I'm thinking we'd all be a bit more forthcoming if you weren't being so opaque.
