Depends on the reinstall. If you're talking about reinstalling OSX which also means reinstalling all your vi's, etc. then nothing can possibly be remembered.

I know you said you tried Pete's utility but never said if it helped your problem. If you did try it and it didn't solve your problem it looks like you're in for some heavy work doing a reinstall of OSX and everything. But before you do that you never said what your exact problem was. All you said was that PT was acting glitchy. Tell us what the exact problem is you're seeing (what the glitches are) and we may be able to help before you set yourself up for a long weekend's worth of work.
