I was having some issues with my new mac, CS4 was running crashy after a big crash with system that occured when closing out the OS. Apple had me erase and reinstall the operating system. I reinstalled CS4, everything seemed to go smoothly. My after effects project I was working on before the reinstall opened up fine, but when I went to turned off the Live Update switch I got an error message (which i unfortunately did not write down). I restarted the computer, did not get the error message when flipping the live update switch, but I tried to apply cc particle world to a solid and I got the error message "After Effects error: crash occured while invoking effect plug-in "CC Particle World"" and it crashed out of after effects auto saving the file. I tried to apply CC particle world to a solid in a brand new composition, same thing. This is a brand new install with Mac os 10.6.2. I never had this problem before the reinstall. If any one has any advice, please let me know. thanks.

Apple's tech support has only a few scripts and you got one of the worst. Next time, go looking for help among Mac users first. apple.com has a discussion area for OS10 and you can search apple.com for relevant knowledge base articles.
Crashing the Mac OS is not unheard of but "closing out the OS" is something I have never heard of anyone doing. Did you mean you shut down the macintosh and experienced this crash?
Umm, never mind, it's all irrelevant and this is NOT a Macintosh assistance forum.
Let us knwo what happens after Todd's suggestion of updating your CS4 apps.
