    So honestly I'm having the worst luck trying to get this sorted out, so if you have any idea, please help.

    I have a Macbook Pro- i bought it 4 years ago and it came preinstalled with Quicktime X. Well at some point I stupidly deleted that programme, and now I have no way of getting it back unless I reinstall my entire computer, or go out and buy another Snow Leopard install disc so I can extract the Quicktime X programme from it and reinstall it onto my laptop. I'm more likely going to do the latter.

    My question is- if I download and install Lion for my laptop, will it come with a new copy of Quicktime X?

    I mean, I may as well upgrade if I'm going to reinstall everything. Does Lion come with Quicktime X specifically?

    I guess the simplified version of what I'm trying to ask is-

    By upgrading my OS X, do I get the ability to reinstall Quicktime X?

    I've never used it (hence why I probably deleted it all those years ago), but I need it for the screen capturing feature for my job. I literally cannot use anything else so I'm kinda f*cked without it!

    I've never owned a Mac, but is it possible to repair your installation by booting from the DVD? (Also I'm guessing QuickTime X is different to this)

    Yeah, and still being updated. As if Apple would stop using some proprietary thing, hell would sooner freeze over.
