    After updating to 10.6.3 and having Photoshop CS3 crash upon start up right after the update everytime I tried to open it I have had to reinstall 10.6.0 and update back to 10.6.2 and Photoshop CS3 works fine just like it did before. Until there is a fix "DO NOT UPDATE to 10.6.3" Apple and Adobe know about this and it is unfortunate that they do not have a great relationship with each other to check this compatibility before the software update release. If you've updated and your Adobe creative suite isn't working then you will have to revert back to 10.6.2 to get it to work. Big time waste, I know. I have learned from now on to not do the software update until I know the update is solid and these Apple discussions are a good place to check before you update. Thanks to everyone else for your input.

    I learned from threads here and on the Adobe support site that if the logic board has been replaced in a computer and the BIOS is not flashed with the new serial number, this problem with Photoshop can occur. I took my computer to the Genius Bar (they appreciate it if you make an appointment), and they flashed the serial number and booted up, and Photoshop CS3 works fine. My logic board was replaced in late 2008, and apparently the tech did not enter a serial number. If you look in About this Mac and then click More Info you will see whether a serial number has been recorded. Hope this helps!

    Thanks Janvier,
    Thats exactly what my problem was. I had my logic board replaced about the same time as you and my tech that did it told me that my macbook pro would be fine without the serial number. I guess we all have to learn. I did what you did and now everything is working fine but what a pain.
