    First, install the bug-fix updates. There have been two so far for your version of After Effects.

    Seems to be a file I/O or kernel error, which might require some deeper system inspection. Could be that some core library is of the wrong version or you are seeing some oddities with 32bit vs. 64bit compatibility stuff... Impossible to say from a distance, but it would seem that this only can be fixed by reinstalling your OS cleanly from scratch...

    Well, if it still uses a specific kernel version that is not compatible nothing would have changed. I agree that it's odd, but something is going on on your system. Perhaps time to call in another Mac geek for a hands-on look?
