    Default can't save any files in Illustrator CS2

    okay guys, This is a new one on me. was working on a project over the weekend and my illustrator stopped letting me save or open files. When I open AI and then go to the file menu and select open the menus gray out like a dialog box has opened but I can't see anything. it does the same thing when I try to save a file. If I go to my computer and double click and illustrator file it will open just fine. and when I just use ctrl-s to save it then it works just fine. but any time I use export, save as, open or save to web it just go to the same problem. I tried un-installing AI and then re installing after fresh boot. still no luck. I tried un-installing the entire CS2 Package and still no luck as well. I am at a loss on this one now. Can anyone help me out? I am on Windows XP Pro.

    Thanks for that reminder. I can't believe I didn't think of that. I bet thats what the problem is. Gotta wait till I get back to the home computer to try that out. but I am running dual monitors and I have had this issue before in other software as well. Thanks for the reminder. HUGE Help!
