You need to get 10.7 or 10.8 downloaded from the App Store.
The App store should be in your applications folder if you are runnig 10.6.8

From 10.6.8 onwards now you downlaod updates from the App store. In this case you need to download 10.7 or 10.8. You can no longer download 10.7 from the app store as its no longer availiable, only 10.8 is.
So Im guessing you purchased 10.7 at some point form the app store. Now if 10.7 was still available you could just search for it on the app store and download it again for free. But its not! If you can you need to purchase 10.8 from the app store and downlaod it. From there these apps should work again. If however you can't download 10.8 from the app store as you Mac is out of date you will need to take it in to an Apple store.

Thanks for replying so quick. Sadly app store isn't working. I have snow leopard installer on my backup - which never got installed cos the HD was fried - however it won't install. I have now means of getting online via safari or App Store to fix it. Might it be possible to hook up my mate's mac book to talk to the imac and install that way?

If you have the disk to snow leopard you could run it in target disk mode with a firewire cable connected between the two.

Taking it in to store is not really an option for a fair while. Is it the 9-4 pin I need?
