Family Tree Maker extremely slow, wrong file creation dates

I am working on a MacBook Pro, 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB memory and Mac OS X Version 10.6.8. Updates are current. Year, month, date and time are correct.

Approx. one month ago, I installed Family Tree Maker 2 for Mac and imported/opened my old Family Tree Maker for Mac file into the newer version. All was going well until a week ago.

The program slowed to a crawl . . . and I mean a crawl. The creation date for the Family Tree Maker 2 file somehow became the year 2038, plus month, date and time. As well, all the media files (photos, census records, etc.) that were attached to my family tree showed the same creation date as the program file itself (year 2038).

I was able to change the creation date on all the media files using the Terminal, and have tried, unsuccessfully, to change the creation date on the Family Tree Maker 2 file using Terminal as well.

I contacted the providers of the program and followed their instructions . . . I uninstalled and reinstalled the program, Family Tree Maker 2 for Mac, and the same creation date (2038) is there when I open the file.

Even the backup file that I made of my family tree has the weird creation year.

Desperate? Yes! I have over 20,000 people resting in my family tree. Can someone help?
