Here's what to do. Redownload the software using a torrent site, and reinstall it using your legal key code. The keycode can be found when first starting up photoshop. It's listed right there.

    Yes, it's because of a photoshop bug. Maybe a recent update to adobe, or your mac machine messed with the application support files. However, the best solution is to re-install the software. However, if you've misplaced them then you'll need to repurchase them. Adobe might offer to sell you replacement disks, but I don't know on the cost or anything. You can also try buying the CD's on ebay. Other than a reinstall, you're kind of stuck.
    My previous comment which you marked as "inappropriate" was to download the cd's using a torrent site, but not to use the pirated keycode they'll give you. Instead, if you register it with your legitimate keycode from your install, it will be completely legal. 
    There are other solutions such as manually trying to fix the application support paths by copying files from another mac with the same version of photoshop to your machine, but as I said earlier it's not easy at all. Reinstall it.

I have Photoshop CS3 on two PCs, abandoning one and wish to install PS CS3 on a Mac, replacing 2d pc. Can I do this and keep PS3 also on the PC? Same question for Lightroom and the Bridge. Can I share...

No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

How do I convert my PDF files to JPG files? These are pictures.

lacking the expensive adobe acrobat (not the reader) .. then they make it hard to do .. but here is a simple way .. display the photo you want as large as possible on the screen ... then push the "PRN SCR" button (print screen) .. now an image of the whole screen is in the "copy buffer" (clipboard) .. now open any photo editor (if you dont have one you can use "microsoft Paint" , that comes with windows) click on "paste" now you have that screen image as a picture ... you can use the magnifier to display the image bigger or smaller (alt click makes it smaller) .. then in paint you select the portion of the picture you want to keep (selection tools) then click on "crop" now save that as a JPG or other file format that is supported .. now you have a JPG of the image that was in the PDF ... the resolution of the final result depends on how big you were able to make the object before you pushed "PRN SCR" it will look just like what you see on the screen ... you can also paste into Microsoft Word if you have that .. Gimp is a really nice Free photo editor if you are willing to learn a lot .. it will take a while to get into but is worth while .. does a nice job for things like this ..

I cannot open NEF files with Adobe elements, so what programma do I need in order to open these files? The photos were taken with a Nikon D70 as RAW files, and transferred to my laptop which runs on...

You can use Adobe Photoshop to edit the files in the nikon format or if you just want to view them you could use a .nef to .jpeg converter. I found one that will convert a batch of .nef files to .jpeg by just dragging and dropping them. You can find that here:
