First try to reset Illustrators preference file by holding down Comand + Option/Alt + Shift while Illustrator starts up.

In CS3 there are some applications that are known for interrupting these keys in Illustrator. Start Illustrator before you open: Entourage, TextMate or Firefox.

Did the suggested answer not work in the last seven months? Was it never tried? Did a software update solve the problem? New computer?

I am not really satisfied with the askers reactions.
