Intellij 9 error on boot and does not start

I am getting the attached error when i try to start Intellij 9 (premier).
It seems to be related to the testng plugin.
I tried to move the plugin directory of testng but that did not solve the problem.
What else can i do to solve this?

Hello David,

The problem is caused by the Log4J plugin (which is third-party and incompatible
with IDEA 9), not by TestNG (which is bundled and therefore always works).

Thank you for the response. In the end i reinstalled. What is the solution if i have  a bad plugin -- removing the plugin folder will enable me to start intellij?

Yes, of course. Third-party plugins are installed under .IntelliJIdea90/config/plugins
- that's where you need to remove them from.
