Photoshop: Photomerge "error 19, bad argument: invalid source format" on Win7

I just installed the new CS5.1 trial version on my new lap top (windows 7, i-7, 6 gig ram, 2 gig video). Everything seems to work except photomerge. When I press, file, automate, photomerge. I get this error 19, bad argument: invalid source format. I don't get this since I have no photo open whatsover.

Do you have any idea what the problem might be?

I'm going to add a few more things in addition to Jeff's 2 requests above.

1. After the reinstall, was updating successful?

2. For the crash - any text/screenshot you can post would be helpful.

3. Also, if you could post/send your system info (Photoshop: Help > System Info...)

4. Jeff has already covered:
Drive Naming
Edit > Preferences > Interface... Open Documents as Tabs = ON
Clearing Preferences & Restart

5. Now this one is a long-shot, but bad fonts can do bad things:

Looking forward to the System Info and Crash reports
Thanks for your patience,
