This is a personal disaster.  No printer. No Excel or Windows.  Cost Cost Cost to fix it.

Slows up the system.

It reminds me of doing a windows upgrade.  These guys are supposed to be better.

    If you have Time Machine Snow Leopard backups, just do a full system restore, per #14 in Time Machine - Frequently Asked Questions.

    Okay, so I want snow leopard back, but I never backed up my files, and I want to now, but I have lion osx and if I do back up my files now, when I restore it, it will restore as lion.... so what should I do? Should I get an external hardrive and just put my files on there and not use Time Machine... or is that even possible? Help?

    This is the reason why 'backing up' has become the No. 1 rule of computing over the last 10 years. Wanting to do it now is a bit late. You can do a fresh erase and install of Snow Leopard from your system disks and just hope you can copy over any data you need from the Lion backup, although I would be pretty sure that Mail may be gone and a lot of preferences will need to be reset. Someone else may have a better solution. But I would be seriously looking at WHY you are having issues running slow, as that is not the normal experience of Lion, except perhaps by some in a trouble shooting forum. And Office is obviously 2004 which won't work anymore but is seven years old after all.
