If you are the only user on the machine, then effectively you are the admin (or in Mac terms the "User can Manage this Computer" guy), but there may be issues on the file level. I recommend as a start you run OnyX or OSX' own disk utility and let it check your drive status and repair permissions, if necessary. Since you say the programs start up to a certain point, it would help to know the last status message on the splash screen. Since both apps crash, I suspect it relates to MediaCore and you either having one of the aforementioned permission problems on the Media Cache folder, the Dynamic Link manager not launching or a third-party CoDec interfering - whichever comes first. Also look into trashing the prefs and all that. Some more generic info on installs and directories can be found here, here and here.
Thanks for so far Meillenium, nut your tips didnt work, i checked the disk permissions, changed the read&write rights of aftereffects to my account, how its explained in one of your links. But nothing changed, after effects still crashes while "Initialiesiere Media Core" and Premiere is painting the interface, but when i klick anything, it crashes.
Auch an dich beste Grüße
What MacBook is it exactly? Depending on which model, there may be limitations on how MediaCore enables hardware acceleration features and that may cause a crash. Also make sure, you run at the native screen resolution. As a last thing, have a look at your Quicktime install and configuration. All video editing tools require the conventional QT 7 to be installed, not just QT X...
Its a MacBook Pro 17" with i7 and 8 GB DDR3 (Mid. 2010)... anymore information needed`?
Native Screen solution should be maximum, isnt it?
i gonna try to reinstal QT,
thanks for now, i will post what it changed in a few minutes
Seems like it isnt possible to reinstall Quicktime in Mac OSX, i cant install QT7 because QTX is installed. Uninstalling QTX isnt possible too, so what do i have to do?

> i cant install QT7 because QTX is installed
That's not true. Many people have QuickTime 7.6.x and QuickTime X installed.
Don't let the name fool you. QuickTime 7 and QuickTime X are not different versions of the same software. QuickTime 7 is a multimedia platform with lots of useful features (including a player). QuickTime X is mostly just a player for a very small number of formats.
so now i have installed both, 7 and X, but it still crashes.
any other suggestions?
thank you for so far
Do you have installed any 3rd party plugins by any chance ?
do you mean after effects plug ins or codecs?
i have installed vlc media player, but that its. nothing als like trapcode or whatever.
I have reinstalled everything now, then running the cleanscript and repairung rights with the intsall dvd. now it still wont work. maybe this changelog out of the terminal will help you:

Well now i am shure that somehting about the privilegs of my normal admin account is strange. i can run after effects from a root accoutn as well as from a guest account. Just from my normal admin account it wont work. i have booted from install dvd and run the repair tool for privilegs, but nothing changed. i hate it.
