Illustrator 10 - Freezes on Startup - Plug-ins Illustrator.exe - Adobe Illustrator Windows

    Default Illustrator 10 - Freezes on Startup - Plug-ins Illustrator.exe

    Hi...
    I'm having a problem with my Illustrator 10. It freezes on start up, when it gets to Illustrator.exe. One day it ran fine, the next - it just stopped running completely.

    I'm running: Win 98SE and Illustrator 10

    I've tried:
    - Deleting the Prefs
    - Deleting and Re-installing the program
    - Deleting, removing from the registry, and reinstalling (reboot after each stage) the program
    - Deleting and removing from registry - all my adobe programs (again with reboots after each stage).

    The printer hasn't changed, and there are no additional plug-ins have been installed. I have found that Illustrator will come up if I remove everything from the Plug-In's folder though... If there is anything in the folder, Illustrator freezes up.

    Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Laura,

    You appear to have done everything that anyone here is likely to
    suggest, which will be why you haven't had any responses.

    One thing, you say "One day it ran fine, the next - it just stopped
    running completely.". So, the question is, what changed on your machine
    between the two? Any other applications installed or updated? Any
    Windows Updates etc?

    Laura:

    This problem has been solved by searching for and deleting temp (.tmp) files. It also can be caused by having too many fonts installed (greater than around 150). steve
