    Just upgraded from 10.1.5 to 10.3, and now none of my Adobe products will boot up in OSX. The process begins, then there they 'unexpectedly quit'. Something about a kernel error?? I have to boot them all up in classic environment, which is ridiculous. I've also just downloaded the trial of photoshop cs, and that won't even begin booting up. How frustrating: suggestions?

    HAVE NOW FIXED THE FIRST PROB THANKS TO GED (WHO IS NOW MY PERSONAL HERO) - BUT STILL HAVING NO LUCK BOOTING UP ANY OF THE CS SOFTWARE - IT JUST APPEARS, AS IF IT IS LOADING UP, THEN DISAPPEARS. AAARGH!!

    Have you removed the preferences? If they're corrupted, the applications might act that way.

    Before abandoning all hope :p certainly run the repair permissions utility from your Panther installation disk one--boot from it as you probably know, holding down "C" until the Apple appears onscreen.

    Where might they be? Sorry for sounding like a moron, but I am, when it comes to problems like this...

    To restore all preferences to their default settings:

    In Mac OS, hold down Option+Command+Shift immediately after launching Photoshop Elements. Click Yes to delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements settings file.

    Nothing bad happens and the preferences can be reset as you prefer.
