Well, a complete uninstall/reinstall didn't fix it but your suggestion did the trick... the program started up and loaded my project anyway. I haven't yet gotten back to editing but things look hopefull anyway.
Thanks, that was a big relief as well as a load off my mind. Now if it screws up again I at least know the "secret handshake". That little gem just got added to a post-it note on the monitor.

Grin... just don't (warning... blond joke) use whiteout on the screen!
Is that why I can't see part of the screen? The scarry thing is I remember using whiteout when typing papers in college, I also remember the first 10 years in business making work tapes for A/B roll editing and having to start over if you screwed up the timing... that first NLE in '95 was a miracle even if I only had an hour of video storage.

If your Program Monitor is messed up in Premiere, this is a current known issue for Matrox users. Revert to the older Nvidia graphics driver, the latest causes issues.

That was a bit tongue in cheek in response to the comment about white out on the monitor above my post.
I know about the latest Nvidia drivers, Matrox and Premiere... I had that bite me a few weeks ago when I upgraded my drivers and then had to roll back to a previous version.
Generally Preferences are liable to currput... Caches too..
So whenever you experience problems with any app, resort to some householding and rid yourself of
preferences and caches and other files which the application is relying on...
Glad it all worked out
