Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am excited to get started with you.So I can better assist you, I will need additional information. Are you communicating from another computer? What operating system are your running?
On your macbook pro, click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and choose about this mac. Can you read me the version number?
You mentioned you had the install disk, is it currently inside your machine?
Before we move forward, lets just confirm that safari is indeed deleted. On your mac, click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner and type in safari, chrome or firefox
Let me know if either of those three appear
Ok great, we will use firefox to get safari
Do you see the safari app?
OK so you can download safari via firefox. Go ahead and open firefox
Go to apple.com/downloads
Go to mac software updates towards the bottom right and choose Mac OS and Software
Yes if you see it
Do you see where it says download safari?
Lets do this, click on the apple in the upper left corner on your mac and choose software update. What updates are available
Sorry for the delay, we are experiencing some system issues
Have you installed the safari update?
I will show you how to keep it in the dock. Click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner again and type in safari
Ok good! Was there anything els I can assist you with today?
To get back to system preferences, click on the apple logo in the upper left corner and choose system preferences
Would you also like that to remain in the dock?
Try it again. If it does not work, restart your computer
Ok that may be because it was in the trash
Is it in the application folder yet
Drag it back to the applications folder
So were is system preferences now?
Can you open your trash and see if it is in there? You mentioned that it was trashed
We may need to re-install your operating system. Before we do that, click on the magnifying glass in the upper right corner and type in disk utility
click on macintosh HD in the left column and then choose repair permissions
When it finishes, restart your computer
You will need to re-install your entire operating system. Initiating the re-installation is easy however the installation itself will take about 40-60 mins. I appears your mac has multiple system issues which is why repairing permissions is taking longer than normal
Yes the Mac os install disk is what you need. No, re-installing your os will not mess with safari
No problem, yes your main issue was solved so you do have safari back :) you can always re-install your OS at a later time if you wish. Just pop the install disk in and follow the onscreen instructions
You are very welcome. Have a safe flight
I will :)
