Print & Save-As broken on 10.1.5 - Mac Applications & Software

Today I tried several times to Print from various applications. Every time, the application "quit unexpectedly." This was Opera, TextEdit, MS Word, Camino, Internet Explorer, etc. I tried to cut-n-paste text into some of them, and "Save As" only to have each of those quit. Save As kills the App _after_ I OK the directory/filename widget. Print kills the App instantly, without bringing up the Preview/OK/Cancel widget. I ran Repair Permissions, and now Save As works, but Print is unchanged. I ran update_prebinding next. Didn't expect it to make a difference, and it didn't. Rebooting has not fixed it either. ...

    Default Print & Save-As broken on 10.1.5

    Today I tried several times to Print from various applications.
    Every time, the application "quit unexpectedly." This was
    Opera, TextEdit, MS Word, Camino, Internet Explorer, etc.

    I tried to cut-n-paste text into some of them, and "Save As"
    only to have each of those quit.

    Save As kills the App _after_ I OK the directory/filename widget.

    Print kills the App instantly, without bringing up the
    Preview/OK/Cancel widget.

    I ran Repair Permissions, and now Save As works, but Print
    is unchanged.

    I ran update_prebinding next. Didn't expect it to
    make a difference, and it didn't.

    Rebooting has not fixed it either.

    Worked OK yesterday.

    Norton AV scrubs the disk daily.

    Any ideas?

    I've had very few problems with Norton AV (AntiVirus)

    The only problem is that it crashes if an archive is so big that
    there's insufficient disk space for a temporary unpacking.

    But that's only when I try to run it interactively.

    When no one is logged in, it runs from the scheduler
    in the we hours just fine.

    I only through that in to avoid suggestions
    of a virus. The Print service worked one day
    and not the next, and nothing was downloaded
    in between.

    Save As apparently was fixed by Repair Permissions
    (although I did not change any permissions or do
    anything that could have changed them when it broke!)

    Now my son tells me that AppleWorks will crash when
    he opens an old file or does certain functions on
    a new file.

    That was working a week ago.

    I guess, if no one has a better idea, I'll download
    and re-run the 10.1.5 combo update (sigh, no phone
    for a couple of hours.....)

    Will a 10.0.3 CD and a 10.1.0 update CD re-install
    ALL software (even if later versions already present)
    without disturbing user accounts and Pref files?
