suddenly today I closed ArcCatalog 10 at the same time ArcMap 10 was opening. Afterwords, neither would open.

I uninstalled ArcGIS 10 then reinstalled. Still nothing; I then deleted ArcCatalog.gx and Normal.gxt and ArcCatalog finally opens!!

I deleted \Desktop10.0\ArcMap\Templates\Normal.mxt but ArcMap still won't open...any ideas? Frustrating, I have to get some work done!
