    I'm currently using a Mac Pro 2.66 with 2 gigs of ram.

    Every program I run works fine...I use parallels and remote connect to a pc all the time. No problems

    When I open Dreamweaver to do simple edits and work I get a pinwheel that wont go away. Must force quit.

    The rest of CS3 works just fine, I use photoshop and illustrator and have no trouble at all. Anyone have any guesses on what could be wrong? Thanks!

    First thing that comes to mind, are you working with an extremely large site? The site cache could be slowing down the loading process.

    To clarify, are you using Dreamweaver via Parallels? If so, why not run Dreamweaver/CS3 on OSX?

    I run Dreamweaver CS3 (Mac) on my MBP 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo without any pinwheeling so I know it isn't a power issue. I think the size of your site may be quite large (ie 1000+ files). Have you tried letting Dreamweaver just run for a while just to see if it was loading the cache? If it runs more than half an hour, I'd say you might need to reinstall it.
