I'm having a few problems with Leopard...When I got my macbook, the leopard cd was included, so right when i turned it on and stuff I upgraded to Leopard. I hear that doing a clean install works best, so I was wondering if I could do that now (or is it too late) and if so, will I lose all of my files? If so, I do have a time machine backup, but will that only restore my main files and not my apps, etc? Thanks =D

It sounds like you just got your computer if the Leopard DVD was included. I don't think you need to do an additional install as long as everything on your computer is working fine.

Mac users swear by their computers. PC users swear at their computers.

When I bought my MB Leopard was installed. However some of the apps weren't (bootcamp). I reran the install and did an archive and install and it copied everything to an old folder but didn't change any settings and didn't delete any apps.
