I have an iMac with MAC OSX Lion 10.7.2.


As of last week, my Word and Power Point applications are both disabled.  When I click on the icons, I receive this message:


"You can't open the application Microsoft Word because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."


And both applications have a big X thru the icon.


I have both applications on my MacBook Pro and nothing has happened to those applications, they are operating fine.


What happened???
