Mac Unable to Open Adobe Programs

Hi,

Macbook Pro 10.5.8 and trying to open Adobe Photoshop 10.0.1 and comes up with application unexpectedly quit. Think this may have been since parallels has been installed but not sure. Any ideas appreciated. I have looked at other posts regarding epson scanners causing issues but no joy fixing this one. I am thinking of a reinstall of Adobe ? This also causing issues with all adobe products but sometimes when loading / opening files.

Thanks,
LVL 1

Remove Adobe Photoshop and then reinstall it.  That'd be the first thing I'd do.

The latter link suggests there is a good possibility that your problem is caused by a corrupted font.

Try some of the links in my posts above. They don't require the disks.

I am putting my money on a corrupted font or an incompatible twain plug-in. Don't be too quick to re-install Photoshop as that can cause problems -- see my last link above.
