Syntax Error message

Syntax Error message

I am on a Mac. I use Dreamweaver 8, and have started to get the following error message when I open any Dreamweaver page:

"The following translators were not loaded due to errors: The following JavaScript error(s) occured:
At line 1266 of file "MacintoshHD:Applications:MacromediaDreamweaver8:Configuration:Shared:PayPalSha red.js":
var re11 = /+/g;
SyntaxError: invalid quantifier

I have since deleted the file 'PayPalShared.js' and reinstalled Dreamweaver8, but I get the message everytime I open a Dreamweaver page.

When I open any Dreamweaver file, I get the error message, click ok, and the page opens and appears blank. However, I can see the coding is still in the file.

I have tried quitting Dreamweaver, and opening Extensions Manager. All I get is a blank box. No extensions appear within it.

Any ideas? Thank you, Chris
