Photoshop CS3 not starting up.... closes immediately

Hi all,
I have PS CS3.

Its been working fine for as long as I can remember. However the last time I used it I tried (for the first time) browsing using the Adobe dialog, instead of OS one, and also using Browse... to view files. The browse dialog never appeared, but I thought nothing of it at the time.

Since then whenever I try to open PS it flashes up for a second, the seems to close itself, before the splash screen even appears.

Anything know whats causing this? Ive uninstalled my flash 9 player, which was recently upgraded, thinking it might have been the cause.

Any and all help is appreciated,

you could try deleting your preferences which is done by deleting the actual file, or when photoshop is starting up, holding cmnd + opt + shift (ctrl + alt + shift).

On the Mac side you hold the option key down while opening Photoshop and it goes directly to opening a specific file. If your browser is trying to look at a location that no longer exists, this will fix it.
