    Hello,

     

    Is it just gone from the Dock, or gone from the Applications folder also?

  • Leciaatapple Level 1 Level 1

    Gone from the Dock (which would not worry me at al)  but gone from the Applications Folder -  which does.

    I guess you'll have to boot from the Restore Partition using CMD+r at bootup, then use Disk Utility to make sure the drive is OK before restoring.

    Thanks so much for your input.  As I was somewhat desparate last night - I have managed to put Address Book back into Applications by lifting it off another computer on a stick and then downloading it to my laptop. And miracle of miracles, it came up with all my names and addresses ---- don't know how that happens but obviously they are stored somewhere on my laptop and once Address Book was back in they were loaded.  SO it seems I am okay but will keep your instructions in case it happens again!

     

    Thank yu very much. Lecia

    Great to hear, thanks... it is a mytery why it got deleted, did youcheck the trash? any kids or pets around?

  • Leciaatapple Level 1 Level 1

    No kids or pets --- just me!I don't think there is too much mystery about the deletion of Address Book on my laptop.  I was trying to get it up-to-date from my desktop computer and as that is Lion and the laptop is sitll Leopard (all these ***** cats!) I must have trashed the laptop Address Book, then tried to install the one from Lion but, of course it couldn't be installed - wrong system!  By then I had lost Address Book!!  Horrors!  I then lifted it from my husband's computer (Panther or something!) et voila!   But I had expected to have all HIS names and address in Address Book when I opened it but -- not so, his were not there and mine were!   Don't ask!!

    Thanks again and regards, Lecia

    OK, thanks for the report Lecia, & good luck!

  • Leciaatapple Level 1 Level 1

    And thank you!

     

    As an aside --------  I have just seen my last message --- and the ****** stars deleting the word I put in front of "cats"!!  Well, as far as I am concerned, it wasn't a rude word - but then someone must have thought it was!   How sad that words have changed their meaning!

    Yeah, even "bad" is "good" now!?

  • Leciaatapple Level 1 Level 1

    I think you might mean it to be the other way round.  Good is now bad???

    So - Goodnight and Out.
