All Adobe products crash when opening files

Hello Experts - I have a desktop running Win7x64 with Adobe Illustrator, Acrobat, and Photoshop (CS3) installed.  They all have the same problem.  When attempting to open files if I try and browse to any folder other than what it defaults to the application crashes and I lose any unsaved work.  What could be causing all these Adobe products to fail in the same way?

Are all these applications from CS3? If so, they are not compatible (or at least not supported) with Windows 7:

Using compatibility mode worked great, thank you!
