pinch, spherize,twirl, zigzag filters unavailable

Greetings everyone,
With this being my first foray into this forum I'm almost embarassed to post something that I hope is so rudimentary. I am working on a file on a Mac based photoshop CS3 platform and I want to run the spherize filter. The problem is that the spherize filter is grayed out, along with the pinch, twirl, and zigzag filters. I am running the file in 8 bit mode as well as a RGB color space so I don't think that's a problem. Any suggestions?

Re: pinch, spherize,twirl, zigzag filters unavaila

I couldn't think of a valid reason. So, I checked the Adobe Knowledge DB.
Here is their only known reason:

Filters are missing or do not work in Photoshop CS3 and Photoshop CS3 Extended
*
Ratings:0

Issue

One or more of the following issues occur when you use Adobe Photoshop CS3 or Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended:

* When you choose a filter from the Filter menu, nothing happens; the filter does not present a dialog box.
* When you choose the Filter menu, certain filters appear grayed out when they should be available.

Reason

The onOne Software Mask Pro plug-in conflicts with the native filters in Photoshop CS3.
Solution

Visit the onOne website for updated installers.

The current products that are affected by this issue include:

Plug-in Suite 3.0.1
Genuine Fractals 5.0.3
Mask Pro 4.1.1
PhotoFrame Pro 3.1.1
Intellihance Pro 4.2.1

ahhh, that would do it!! I downloaded the genuine fractals demo awhile back and I'm sure that's got to be it. Thanks so much for your help!!!
