    Default Spinning beach ball when opening CS3

    First I wasn't able to connect to any of my sites, now I'm getting the
    "spinning beach ball of death" every time I open CS3. It is completely
    unresponsive and I have to "force quit" to get out of the application.

    First advice: search the form on spinning AND beach AND ball.

    I think I just solved the exact same problem - thanks to a posting somewhere
    else here that I can no longer find. I uninstalled the flash player plug-in
    from my mac, using the uninstaller from Adobe, and now Contribute CS3 (4.1) on
    my Intel iMac 10.5.6 is behaving itself.
    Of course it's far from ideal, since it means I can't use Flash period in any
    web player, but I suspect with a bit of patience it's a version compatibility
    issue and if I install an earlier version it might be fine. Anyway, for sure
    in my case the problem seems related to the flash player.

    I have been having similar problems on my G4 and on my Intel Macbook since the
    end of last week and the only changes to both systems has been the QuickTime
    7.6 upgrade for Leopard.
    I have used the sampler in Activity Monitor to see what Contribute is doing
    while the Beachball is showing and it is busily doing nothing, waiting on a
    variety of events, spinnig its wheels.

    As far as Flash Player is concerned, the last update goes back to October and
    I have been using Contribute without any problems since then (up until last
    Friday).

    Any clues?

    Hi,

    There is a simple fix in another discussion thread.
