Well in case anyone else has a similar problem I have solved it with the help of someone who is a computer buff. I deleted the aif_ogl.dll file and all references to Pixel Bender from CS6, then re-installed from the CS6 DVD and this seems to have solved the problem. CS6 now opens with no error messages.
Yes, the pixel bender plug in added some components to photoshop that are now part of CS6, so when you tried to install the plug-in, the new DLLs were overwritten by old ones.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Can I use Pixel Bender in CS6? If so how?

No, sorry. The Pixel Bender plug-in will not work with PS CS6.
Pixel Bender support for After Effects CS6 and PhotoShop CS6 were dropped so I consider Pixel Bender to be dead?!
Where is the benefit of programming Effects/Filters/Shaders when you can't use them anymore in a professional environment?
Well I hope it is only temporarily that the support is dropped otherwise I'm really asking myself why on earth I learned the Pixel Bender language!
If it's true then this really was a waste of time!
Some clarification from Adobe would be great.
Will there be a pixel blender released for CS6?
