Adobe Illustrator crash problems

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
Hey everybody,
Having problems with Illustrator on my MBP. Had an older version for several months (pretty sure it was version 10). Worked OK except for some random crashes every now and again. Then crashes started happening more frequently until I could no longer open the program.
Removed version 10 and tried installing CS2 version of illustrator. Installs fine but I've never been able to open it. Crashes every time during launch. Have tried making a new user and installing it there. Same result. Deleted all Version Cue files I could find and reinstalled. Same result.
Have all the latest updates from Apple including Quicktime 7.1.2
Below is the first part of the crash log (not sure how much of it to copy in). Thanks for any help.

Hi Ken,
Thanks for the suggestion. I did as you said but could not find a process called "translated" in the activity monitor.
Were you having the same type of problem with Illustrator (crashing on startup)?
I should also say that I made another attempt at installing Illustrator CS2 after deleting every Adobe related file on my computer (including Photoshop CS which I had been using without issue).
This improved things a bit in that CS2 no longer crashes immediately as it starts up but instead makes it at least part of the way through the initialization process before crashing (can get it to go all the way through "updating fonts"). But it still never makes it all of the way through start up.
Also, since my last post I've tried opening it after Safe Booting and this doesn't work either (actually it doesn't even get as far as detailed above).
What do you all think? I'm thinking that a clean reinstall of the OS might be the only option left.
