Here's the basic problem: you aren't updating your software often enough.

You don't have to update it every time Adobe or MS tell you there's a new version available, but neither can you ignore updates for years on end. If nothing else, you open yourself up to serious security problems with that approach. Particularly when Apple makes NO SECRET of the fact that they are deprecating old technologies that your old programs are relying on.

The solution is pretty easy: upgrade your Photoshop. Upgrade your Office. Contact Rosetta Stone and they will send you the right version for your newer machine.

Because you waited so very long, some of these upgrades will be pricey. They would have been less pricey overall if you had, for example, upgraded every OTHER release of Adobe Photoshop and thus kept up-to-date ... if fact CS3 still works on Lion, and Microsoft Office 2008 is still supported under Lion.

As a general rule of thumb, new OS version plus very old software = bad mix.
