My hard drive crashed last week and I have finally retrieved everything that was "lost". Every application is running fine, except for Facetime. It will not launch at all, just bounces a couple of times in the dock. It did open once today, but froze up almost immediately. Is there a way to reinstall Facetime since I got it from the App Store? I just can't figure this one out.


Imac, 10.6.8, Facetime 1.0.2


It worked great before the crash, and I have it on my iPad and it works fine there as well.

iMac (20-inch Mid 2007), Mac OS X (10.6.8), Facetime 1.0.2

    This is just a possibility.  Make sure you have all of the latest updates from Apple software update.  If you don't this can prevent FT from performing properly.
