A Pocket Full of Murder

Photoshop Emergency -- Argh!

I already posted this on the blog, but I am desperate enough to put it up here as well in the hopes that somebody can tell me how to fix the problem...

My beloved Photoshop 5.0 LE isn't behaving any more. I can't use either the Type or Type Mask tools -- the fonts are all there and the options box for setting the type comes up just fine, but as soon as I go to apply the text to the image, all I get is a rectangular marquee (with Type Mask) or a solid box in the foreground colour (with Type). This happens regardless of what font or font size I choose. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software, but it didn't help. Nor could I turn up anything on a Google search to help me with this problem.

Does anybody out there have the foggiest notion of what I'm talking about or how to fix it?

Waah! I knew something had to go wrong with the reinstall process...
