Illustrator quits after opening

I've used Illustrator (CS6) succesffuly for months, but in the past couple of days, after I open it and try to mouse over any toolbars or click on artwork, I get the spinning beach ball of death indefinitely.  After moving to another application and trying to go back to Illustrator, it will not come up at all and I have to force quit it.


I'm on a Mac Pro.


Any assitance would be greatly appreciated and probably make me do a very happy dance.

    if that does not work a more aggresive rest of your other preferences.

    move this folder to your desktop
