For a couple of weeks I have been having repeated problems with freezing while using Preview.

I have been through extensive troubleshooting the hardware: Increasing new HD to 500GB (from 120GB), installed total of 4 GB RAM (from 2GB), re-installed Snow Leopard OSX and upgrade to 10.6.6, repaired permissions, run Disk Utility with no problems found. I ran SMART and found no errors. Disk Warrior found 28% fragmentation and repaired directory. I trashed Preference Preview plist.

Many glitches went away but I am still left with freeze problems in Preview.

Today I re-started in Safe Mode and immediately encountered problems in Preview:
1. When I tried to open a few jpg files from desktop I got blank windows in Preview;
2. When I tried to open a folder of jpg files, the Preview window remained blank but the Sidebar strip displayed the jpg pics.

What do I need to do next to get Preview working properly?

MBP 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 4GB SDRAM; 500GB HD
