    After using the MacBook for a few hours this am, I took a lunch break. Upon coming back, one of the programs won't open. All the other programs do, but this single one doesn't.

    The program's called ActivStudio, which is used for schools to make flipcharts for teaching.

    Thanks for any help.

    Could it be that it's already running? Open up Activity Monitor and check.

    It is not running. Also, I have restarted the computer, as one strategy. Also, I tried opening a file to open the program.

    Try re-installing the application or contacting the vendor Here

    You could look for the preference file for the program or it's .kext and delete that. Not sure where you'd find either of them, although I'd imagine it'd be in /Library/Extensions or /Library/Application Data or possibly one of that above folders except in your home directory.

    I'm sure a simple Google search could turn up the location of either of them.
