Best way forward is to buy the disks for your machine and take it from there.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Leaving the original owners account on there is a huge security risk ... for him and for you.
You should purchase a copy of the Snow Leopard Box Set, and use it to totally erase (zero out) the hard drive, then install a fresh copy of Snow Leopard, iLife and iWork 09.
You will be very glad you did.
