    for example, i am trying to upgrade by iTunes, and it doesnt know how to open it. There is no little image like there normally is, just a blank file thing, and it asks me how i want to open it (i have no idea).
    I probably deleted something important when cleaning out my harddrive.
    any ideas?

    chieck and see if the same thing happens in another user, if it does, its archive and install time

    archive / install preserving user settings is not that big of a deal - it'll leave your data and apps alone, and just rebuild the system folders..you'll have to re-run software updates but it wont impact you too much.

    yeah.
    i think i might do that right now.
    Last time i did it, i somehow created 2 profiles of the same shit.
    idk what im doing, but it worked last time.
    except last time it was some file within the OS that took up like 900000% of my computer shit

    called up apple.
    i dont get home from baseball till around 630 and they close at 6.
    today was a short prac, so i called them up, and said the call would cost $50.
    i guess my applecare account thing is dead.
    Still cant login into my account.
    it has all my important school files, and my music locked up :(
