    Okay I've got a weird problem. SOME apps won't open... when I double-click, they come up in the dock for half a second, and boom, it says "Blah blah has unexpectedly quit". Apps that I have seen until now affected: YoupiKey, iKey (don't ask why I have both), Neverwinter Nights, Marble Blast. What they seem to have in common is that they are all bundle programs, as in you can "See Package Contents". But the thing is that other bundle programs work...

    I'm sure there are other programs that don't work... it's just that I've only tried these until now.

    I've done fsck and I've repaired permissions but to no avail...

    OS 10.2.6
    FP iMac 800.

    Thanks.

    Have you found the preferences and moved them to the trash and then started each application again?

    Yeah I forgot to mention that I deleted the preferences, too...

    Well, I'm running Cocktail now to see if that will help... cleaning the cache didn't seem to do anything...

    :(

    It seems the problem was Renew. I deleted this prefpane and magically everything started working again...
