I came back after a two month summer vacation (I unplugged the computer while I was away) and I went to update the software and then the software update app crashed. I tried to report the problem to apple, but it says that the submission failed, "your report could not be sent to apple, please try again later"

I then tried to sync my iPhone, and iTunes crashed, so I tried to report the problem, and I got the same error. So I un-installed iTunes, but when I emptied the trash it said that "iTunesHelper" was in-use, so I couldn't. But then I tried to restore iTunes by taking it out of the trash, and when I tried to open it, it said that it wasn't supported on that architecture.

I restarted the computer, but the problems won't go away. Firefox works fine...'

UPDATE: Safari crashes too...
System preferences works...
Garage Band: Crash!
iPhoto: Crash!
MS Word: Works...
World of Warcraft: Crash!

I am guessing that my problem has something to do with insufficient memory or something like that? I'm not sure...

About my computer: iMac7,1, running Mac OS X 10.5.7
@GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Any help is appreciated, I guess my best bet is to go to the Apple store or tek-serve.

As a start, before taking it in, run disk utility from your install disc and verify/repair permissions and the HD.
This will generally sort any minor issue and may get everything back in line.
