My MacBook Pro 17″ with latest Snow Leopard is showing all sorts of symptoms in the system, Text Edit (note my earlier post re: listing apps in a text file), strange messages at startup, crashing Adobe products…every session brings more surprises. My question: Given problems I have that I have no prayer of diagnosing, I want to clean-install Snow Leopard. Migration would only reintroduce the problems. So, I guess I need to re-install apps one or two at time, watching for the reintroduction of the problems. Is this the way you see dealing with this problem of a range of strange behavior? (Re-installing software that originally came from discs, or downloads, some with serial numbers, some with passwords, is my worst nightmare.) Thanks, Gary, as always.
