I guess that you are using a Mac Pro - a colleague at the local Apple Club is having problems with Photoshop in that it does not do a Save as or something cleanly - I cannot remember the details. He was involved in a war of attrition between Apple and Adobe with Adobe saying that there was a problem in the Mac Pro and Apple saying that the problem was in Photoshop - a classic hardware versus software blame game. His wife was using the same versions of the software on an iMac and it was working fine.

I hope to find out if he has fixed the problem next time we meet.

Have you tried installing full MacOSX on a clean partition and updating it to the current level and then installing Photoshop to see if the problem occurs.
Hi Derick. In answer to your querries the mac is a G5intel chip and I don't understand your first question.....what is "combo update and what is "delta update" I do not understand these two questions

as to your second para the program either Photoshop or Bridge crashes with an error message and the error message is always generated as a PS message which indicates to me that it is Photoshop not connecting properly with the operating system.
