Have you installed any fonts on your system recently?
Maybe a new one is the culprit.
If not, check Mylenium's site.
He has a possible bug fix posted. Scroll down until you see your error.
Check my page as Steve suggested. In addition to the info provided there, you should look into cleaning out your fonts and get rid of any typefaces you don't need, especially ones that are available for free on websites. Often these fonts are not technically perfect and have open contours, which may have some bad side effects. It might also help to boot into "safe mode" once. This will enforce a system integrity check and rebuild all cache files, including the icons and fonts, which may be just what you need.
Ok, thanks, I will look into the site and try starting up in safe mode. I have however no extra fonts installed at this point.
I reinstalled the program and started it up in safe mode but now it just says (0::42) and crashes. I also tried opening the program in Windows XP compatebility mode but to no avail.
Please try these trouble-shooting tips and report back:

I'm afraid none of this really worked out. I will try to reinstall the program using your guidelines for installation.
Well, none of it really got me closer to resolving the problem. Thank you for the pointers anyway. Both AE and Premiere don't start up at all now. I ran the Adobe cleaner etc.
I used to really love After Effects but I fail to see the appeal of a program that is this incompatible with the system it is installed on and the other programs that may be installed. I also don't get this incompatibility with fonts, as After Effects is supposed to be a compositing program, and as such highly suitable for creating titles for which one uses... fonts.
Is Adobe dictating you to have AE and Premiere CS3 running exclusively on a machine all on their own?
The programs are pretty much useless to me now.
Maybe I need to set up my OS all anew, but I just don't have the time right now to back up all my settings etc.
Thanks for the help so far but this CS3 business has proven to be a lot of trouble and extremely buggy.
I understand your frustration, but it sounds like you need to reinstall your OS, as something has gone terribly wrong. It's a pain, but you'll have a much faster machine once you've reinstalled. I recently reinstalled both Windows XP and OS X 10.5 on my Mac Pro, and everything is working better now, so it's always worth starting from scratch.
