It really depends on what the actual message is.

If it is telling you to update QuickTime, it may just need for you to update iTunes which contains QuickTime in the download.

Use the "Check For Updates" function of iTunes. You'll find it under the File menu.

On the other hand,

your OS may not support the newer versions of iTunes.

Without any details of the computer you are using, it would be difficult to say.

More details please

you should be able to upgrade

this machine to 10.6 quite easily.

Doesn't look like Apple sells it anymore, but you could give them a call to confirm that, but it is available at places like Amazon and eBay.
Saw some this morning selling at $70
