Arvin BautistaCS5 crashes on Snow Leopard... fonts

Just installed CS5 Production Premium and AE and PS crash because of fonts, apparently. AE won't start at all and PS either crashes at startup or when I use the text tool.

I know it's a font compatibility issue, I've been able to remove all the fonts from my font folder and they both start working... but as soon as I bring them back in they start crashing. Font Doctor shows no errors, Font Book shows some "minor issues" on a few fonts but no "serious errors", but it's 300 fonts that are "minor issues" and Font Book even crashes if I try to remove them.

This is so annoying. CS4 works fine! I don't want to have to remove all 300 fonts, I don't even know if it'll work. I've also removed Postscript Type 1 fonts as I've heard it's a problem, I've cleared caches and repaired permissions. Even deleted preference lists.

What else is there to do that doesn't involve one by one reinstalling my 1200 fonts!?
