Hi, Until recently PS CS2 has been running fine, however, in the last 2 weeks I have been experiencing lots of 'spinning beachballs' and application crashes. It seems to be occurring randomly, not just when I try anything processor heavy.

I have run disk utility, removed the .plist files, logged in as a different user, performed a system clean with the 'cocktail' application but still it keeps happening.

I have 100GB free space and 2GB RAM. I think the RAM is okay??

Please help me! Please...

I get the following Problem report (truncated, I can provide the whole thing if required):
