    I have searched the forums but haven't seen this answered already, sorry if it was...

    I was having a screen flicker problem with Snow Leopard so the Mac guy put me back to Leopard which is fine. But now Pages & iPhoto (and maybe others I don't know) won't open! They bounce and then say cannot open, send report or ignore or relaunch and it keeps happening. I repaired disk permissions using disk utility but that didn't work either. Anyone know what I need to do? Gotta do homework, would be great if I could get into Pages! Thanks :)

    What Mac guy?

    What about re-installing iWork? Or iLife? Did that help?

    The certified Apple tech person in my area. I haven't tried reinstalling the applications because they are in Newfoundland, I am at school in Nova Scotia... :S I just tried deleting the preferences but still nothing. STRESS

    You could install the iWork trial, downloadable from www.apple.com/iwork .
    You can also use AppZapper and/or AppDelete to delete all associated files with iWork.

    What about going into an Apple store near you and demanding for a solution?

    I think I am going to do that haha. I think the guy opens 8:30 tomorrow. It's a 20min drive away though so it's a pain in the REAR
