I have the exact same problem. All of my other programs in the Adobe suite work except for Dreamweaver. I tried the preferences fix to no avail. I suppose I will have to download the CS5.5 trial, but then when the trial runs out, I'm back to no DW. I can't afford to upgrade right now.
Here's my stuff, I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit:

Can anyone offer any other solution?
DW Crashes - Restore preferences
If none of those options work, you may need to do a clean re-install of DW.
