Pro Tools issuess.. (PT 8)

Hello all, Merry Christmas... well, not so merry here...

I got an Mbox 2 with PT 8.0.3 (with the PT 9 crossgrade!).

However I can't even get 8 working properly.

I have a i7 Intel iMac, 8gb ram, Snow Leopard 10.6.4

Pro Tools is installed, but when i go to open it, a few things happen (either during the start up when checking plug ins it quits unexpectedly) or it opens, but then when I go to open or create a new session is freezes and doesn't do anything and I have to Force Quit.

Also another odd fact, the digi Core Audio device manager doesn't show my Mbox2, but if it's not plugged in when starting pro tools, it tells me to plug it in, and then pro tools opens... ???

and now my computer has crashed a couple times too... I don't get what the heck is going on here, any help greatly appreciated!!

Ok, hopefully fixing my own issue, Went to digidesign support page, and I see there's an update for pro tools, and an update for my mac os.... did the mac updates, and downloading the PT 8 update, so hopefully that fixes things.
