    I have a few programs that won't open when I click on them. I click on the icon it flashes the program up like it's getting ready to open then it disappears and never opens! Any ideas what's wrong?

    Sometimes a simple reboot takes care of this...

    Sometimes it is a compatibility issue with something else that is running...

    Sometimes it means the application is corrupt and needs to be re-installed...

    Sometimes it means it isn't compatible with the version of the OS you are running.

    Could be a lot of things.

    Sometimes it can be as simple as a bad preference file. Trashing the prefence file sometimes takes care of it.
