Im almost starting from scratch since my computer kept crashing so I re-downloaded and installed Lion. Now all of my applications are asking for serial numbers. it's weird since my old user shows up but the machine boots up as a new user and will not open the old applications..


is there a way to revert back so when my computer starts up, my old user login shows up and I can use my apps and comupet like before?

It happened a few months ago and I re-downladed lion and my computer worked just like before. why would it be different now?


tried to go to sytem preferences but could not find a way to make it start up like before

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
