    error message starting up Flash CS5 -- appears to be caused by welcome screen

    bobba1 Level 1



      I am running windows 7 64-bit, flash player debug (10.1 from labs) and CS5 Master collection.


      I staretd noticing an issue today -- Flash Professional CS5 has begun to freeze on opening it. I eventually get the message "a script in this movie is causing flash player to run slowly. if it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive. Do you want to abort the script?". At this point, I am not running any movies, I am just trying to open flash Pro CS5. When I choose to click "yes" (eg abort the script), then the buttons on the welcome screen do not work. When I click "no" (and do not abort the script) then flash crashes some time in the first 5 minutes of authoring.


      I also noticed that if I disable the opening page (check "do not show again") and reopen flash -- then no problem



      Any ideas on what is happening - anyone?


      Thank you
