CS5 Adobe Illustrator does not open in OS X Lion

I've been using Illustrator for quite a while but when I updated from Snow Leopard to Lion, It wouldn't open. It jumps up and down for about 3 seconds then gives me a crash report.

I re-instaled a fresh copy of Lion and started from scratch, then proceed to install Illustrator CS5 but I still ran into the same problem. It's getting very annoying and I really want to avoid downgrading to Snow Leopard.

Illustrator CS5 is working for me in 10.7.2; perhaps it's a problem with your Adobe installation rather than Lion.

The stupid part is that Bridge, PhotoShop and InDesign all work fine, but Illustrator continues to be a pain in the butt. Any ideas?

Looks like I found the answer to my own post. I was reading on this thread and it turns out that my monitoring spyware application "Refog" is what's causing the problem. VERY strange but I'm glad I found the solution.

My standalone Illustrator CS5 is working fine. Not so Design Premium CS3. Bought the update and expect it soon. Then I'll be joining in all the fun hijinks getting CS5.5 installed and running.

Check out the instructions below. They cover everything I could think of.

I'm pretty sure it's a problem with your preferences or installation somehow, since Illustrator CS5 works perfectly fine for me on Lion. (10.7.0 through 10.7.2)
