I'm running on a macbook pro OS 10.7.4 and illustrator 5.5 crashes everytime I open a new document, select the type tool and scroll through the font list from the font menu list. It scrolls about 25% down the list then crashes the software.

Try this turn off Font Preview and if that doess not work Try turning of Enable Missing Glyph Protection if that does not work turn off both in the Illustrator preference.It is just a guess.

**UPDATE** to the message above, this does work but I'm having to continually do it. I just click & un-click. It's a pain but I need to see the font previews.

I found this link really helpful
[Solved] How to Fix Windows Update Error 80070103

Bascally:

Launch Font Book > Select All > Validate Fonts > Delete anything with a big red 'X'

Then you can turn Font preview back on and it shouldn't crash (so far...)
