    I have recently had these apps freeze on startup:
    -Sketchup 8 (free)
    -Photoshop cs4
    -Pixelmator

    I have every time resolved the issue by deleting the corresponding application support folder in the library.

    Why does this happen and can I stop it from happening? (it has happened 2x for sketchup)

    Any ideas much appreciated.

    I have also found that using the discrete GPU makes apps not freeze on startup.
