I have no idea about the CDF, coz I always use the front end. You may try to reinstall the OS. It seems to me that you installed something that damaged your OS. Thanks Shizu; I'm sure you're right that there's some conflict b/n some software and the Mathematica front end. It's not a general problem since other graphic programs (like Solidworks and Photoshop) work fine. The problem with wiping and reinstalling is that I'll end up with the same problem if its a software conflict. A few years ago I had a bizarre conflict between SolidWorks and another system; they both use LM license manager, and both fought over it; eventually the maker of the license manager came out with a patch that fixed things. I suspect the same type of thing is happening here...just can't figure out where. If anyone else runs into this, I have a workaround: double-clicking a .cdf opens up the front end to the full version of Mathematica (not the player) for me, even though the front end won't run directly. Go figure.
