I created another user and the app works fine over there.
That makes it sound like a preferences issue, for your original user; there is a set for each user so it is important to find the right one. Experience has shown that sometimes deleting is not enough.
In these two hints, Move the folder or Other options , there are some suggestions and a few links, one of them (8 under Other options) concerning font caches, the suggested seach term is clear font caches.
As you probably know, uninstalling and reinstalling does not remove the preferences, but the Clean Script, http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cs4clean.html , used in between does.
Thanks a bunch for the response. I will look into all of that. I actually did also try the clean script. I forgot to add that to the list of things I had tried. I will report back if I figure it out. I don't think it's a font issue since it looks like it crashes during the plugin initiation stage, I just went ahead and dealth with the possible font issues to narrow it down. Now I have to find out which plugins are Adobe and which ones aren't.
Please report back in any case, Tracy: it will add to the knowledge available here.
