I am having memory issues with my Mountain Lion.


I want to remove and reinstall Mountain Lion.  How can i do this without losing all my applications(in app folder and anything of value that should be backed up)?


I have Time Machine backup but if I did restore, it may restore the problem.


Your help would be appreciated.


Thanks and I look forward to your reply.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
