comment I want to buy an old mac with 10.5 (leopard) but the disks were lost during a move.
Hi and welcome to Apple.SE Please try to ask one question at the time, this keeps the site organised. It is hard to backup anything without keeping the personal data. What if the 3rd party apps have registration info embedded for example? By creating a new user and deleting the old one, apps will most likely be preserved, but personal data wont. Not sure about it, hence not posting it as an answer.

comment “PowerPC applications are no longer supported” – Microsoft Office
Can you check the exact version of Word? Go to Applications -> Microsoft Office -> Word and right click and press Get Info. It should be something like 14.3.8 or 14.3.9

comment “PowerPC applications are no longer supported” – Microsoft Office
Although this answer is true in itself, it doesn't help the OP, it's a bit too general. The real issue here is that an application that worked fine suddenly turned into a PowerPC app after an update.

It's not a problem to spread your own software. However, then you should reveal your affiliation with the product. Please add a full disclosure to your answer.

comment Why does word completion not work in Mail?
I've boiled it down to one draft message. Every time I open that message (which is written in Cyrillic) the completion functionality ceases to exist. A restart of Mail.app solves the problem. When I write a new message in Cyrillic the completion works, it's only this one specific message.

Have you tried using the application icons? So a TextEdit (or whatever text editor you use) icon and a Terminal icon?

Thanks for checking. How do I find out where the culprit is? Any configuration files that I can delete such that they're rebuild again?

@IanC. Ok, will do. I just felt that Lri's answer already answered it pretty well, so another answer stating the same would not add much I thought.
