    Reinstall OSX without losing files?
    Hello all,

    Ive had my imac for a year now and now problems, lately finder has started to close and with it closes all the desktop icons, these reappear after a couple of seconds but finder doesnt.
    This is not a killer but can be very annoying. I wanted to know if I can reinstall OSX but without wiping all my files and programmes. I really dot feel like putting everthing back on my mac.

    Many thanks

    Yes, and your options are in the faq's.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
