    i just noticed some of my apps (dreamweaver, flash) not launching, just bouching a couple times then stopping.
    so i put in the OSX install CD, rebooted, and repaired permissions. then restart.
    it seemed to correct the problem with dreamweaver and flash, but now my MS word is doing the same thing. (which didnt before)

    any suggestions??

    I've had the same thing happen with Safari and Mail before. I just restart and it fixed the problem. You may just want to try a restart one more time. It seems to happen on my machine when it's been on and running for weeks and weeks without a restart.

    And if restarting still doesn't help, then a good subsequent step is to create a new user account and try opening the app from there. :)
