ok so here it is, i think i must have done something i shouldnt have, possibly a drunken accident, i cannot remember.
CS3 crashes upon opening, CS2 also fails to work.
so i should un-install then re-install?
how can i un-install properly if i can't get to the utilitie within the application???
CS3 was an update, downloaded.
CS2 was from disc, which i am as of yet, still to locate.
but when it has been found, what can be done???
