    My CS2 has lost the lighting styles. How do I get them back?

    Filter...Render...Lighting Effects....Styles drop-down dialog box has a blank field for styles options

    There should be the following options: 10 O'Clock, 2 O'Clock Spotlight, Blue Omni, Crossing, etc. There should be a total of about 18 options and I have none.

    I checked my Plug-ins/Filters/Lighting Styles directories and the files are intact in their directory, but CS2 just will not access them.

    Can somebody help with a solution?

    Thanks.

    the preference files are very likely the culprit
