Hi,

I hope that someone is able to help. This could be a silly question but its my first day of using a MAC. I got this second hand MAC to hopefully get started doing some development with xcode. Please see other question for hardware info: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Apple/Operating_Systems/OS_X/Q_28001614.html
 
I have a bar of icons along the bottom of the screen(icon bar print screen) and when i try to open itunes i get the following error message(error message print screen).

I went to install quicktime and got the following message on the apple website (quicktime message on apple website).

I then try to do a software update and get informed that all software is up to date(please see print screens - check for software update/ software up to date).

Regards,

Ross

The bar along the bottom is called the DOCK.

As I mentioned in your other thread, your Mac has the older PowerPC chip, which Apple stopped producing 8 years ago. Software designed for Intel Macs won't run on PPC Macs. To all intents and purposes, your computer is obsolete and you need to get an Intel chip Mac if you are at all serious about using it as a development tool.
