Need an ftp service

Apple store told me how to open up with fisc and change password- so I'm in, BUT neither Safari, iTunes , or iPhoto open- all say ".. Can't be opened because of  a prpblem. Check with developer to make sure these work with this version of Mac OSX. You may need to reinstall the application"...

All are up to date - what is happening? I have 8000 photos and 12000 songs- where are they? I had everything backed up I thought.

Sounds like you have an earlier version of the operating system and later versions of the applications.  I suggest updating everything.  Move to 10.7 Lion via the app store.  It should be available as a free download if you've already had lion in the past.  Then run software updates to make sure everything is as up to date as possible.
