A lot of programs, when I open them, they bounce once or twice, and then immediately close. The weirdest thing.

What do I do? SO FRUSTRATING! I've already re-installed iLife, to see it it was just that, but nope.

Ok this happens with (so far):

iMovie HD - after "what do you want to do" window. I choose create new project, and it happens.

iDVD - same as iMovie

Garage Band - the "initializing" window pops up then closes.

Crossover Mac - has the "expires in (blank) days" window, then closes.

I don't see how that could change anything

When I tried it, it didn't do anything.
By logging into a new account, you determine whether the problem is user-specific or system-level...it helps narrow things down.

But what do you mean by "didn't do anything?" They still won't open correctly?

Apps opening then immediately closing

I am also having the same issue. It just started today. It has happening on all applications that I have installed from the AppStore.

Here are several of the applications:

21 Blackjack
CannonGame
Labyrinth
YouNote
Who's Paying

and many more.

I have tried to unintsall the apps and then download it fresh from the appstore and reinstall and it did not fix the problem.

Anyone have any ideas?
