Not intending to sound like a lecture, but what you really should do is purchase a retail copy of Leopard or the Leopard-edition Mac Box Set if you can find it (you can't run Snow Leopard). Leopard should be pretty cheap for a retail DVD these days, the Leopard-edition Mac Box Set would be more pricey but it includes great stuff like iLife (a MUST) and iWork (awesome), then wipe your drive (after saving your documents/music/pics/stuff of course and start over.

This will give you not only a fresh clean system that you can set up as you like, it avoids any security problems (like personal data left behind by the seller, or maybe he's logging your keystrokes -- who knows?) and clears the cruft.

Leopard + iLife/iWork 09 FTW!
