I need to restore or reset my apple computer to an earlier time in order to recover a file. I know how to do it with a PC but not a MAC. Can someone please help me.

The current version of Mac OS X doesn't have that feature, the next version, OS X Leopard, will. You can try using a utility program to recover the file.

These three programs are considered to be good but cost $$

You should think about getting an external drive to back up your data to. They don't cost very much, especially the ones that you can assemble yourself, which isn't very hard to do.
Depending on the version of your Mac, you can boot off the external via USB (Intel) or FireWire (PPC) using a program like Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper!.
