Try deleting the macfilecache .dat file, or your winfilecache .dat file while Dreamweaver is closed. The filecache .dat file is located in the same directory as the configuration folder described below.
If that doesn't work, your configuration folder may have become corrupted. You can rename the configuration folder to have Dreamweaver recreate it. Close Dreamweaver and go to:
--C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8
--C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9
--C:\Documents and Settings\<Your User Name>\Application Data\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US
--C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8
--C:Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9
--C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US
--Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Macromedia: Dreamweaver 8
--Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Adobe: Dreamweaver 9
--Hard disk: Users: <Your User Name>: Library: Application Support: Adobe: Dreamweaver CS4: en_US
(Please note that <Your User Name> Should be replaced with the User name you use to log into your computer)
Rename the configuration folder to configuration_back. This will have the effect of disabling all of the installed extensions. You should open the extension manager and remove all extensions to clear the extension mangers cache. After removing the extensions you can then reinstall them making sure to download the latest versions from your order history.
