    I searched for a solution but can't seem to find anyone who has my specific problem.

    Basically, I installed CS3 extended on my MBP and all was well. I got it activated, but now it won't launch telling me there was an error and it unexpectedly quit. I get three options: ignore, relaunch or report.

    Now the thing is that I read somewhere else that you could log on as a guest user and it would work. So I log on as a guest user (to my own computer no less) and it works like a charm.

    What do I need to do to fix this?

    Running Leopard 10.5.2

    That's kind of what I was thinking. How would I do that?

    That didn't work, actually. I'm re-installing Leopard and will not do the automatic Adobe update. I got a new laptop today and installed and activated CS3 and it worked fine, then I downloaded the adobe update and it's been non-functional ever since.

    Still works on the "guest account" though. Go figure.

    Ok, I've actually isolated the problem but now I'm stuck. I added this line of code to my terminal which disabled the anti-aliasing fonts in Leopard - thing is, it also is affecting Photoshop.

    defaults write .GlobalPreferences AppleAntiAliasingThreshold 200

    How do I get my terminal (defaults) back to normal or how can I remove this command that I entered?

    I'm also having this same problem. Has anyone found a solution?

    It's way frustrating. Mine happens when I am in CS3, right in the middle of my project, then I click to add type and it shuts down.

    I'm thinking I must have a bad font somehow that has corrupted it? Thoughts?

    HELP!
