I guess I am the one who is going to through a twist into things.
I am havnig the same issue with the Menu Writer, though, I am using CS4.
Here are the steps that I have gone through to resolve the issue:
1. Removed the extension
2. Renamed the configuration file
3. Reinstalled over the top of the extension
5. Updating the extension manager from Adobe
Plus, I also purchased the form builder and each time I chose a form it locks up. IT DOES NOT JUST LOCK UP DW BUT THE WHOLE COMPUTER!
