Default Extude doesn't work


I am using maya 2008 and the extrude tool alwys gives me a syntax error. I tried extruding faces and edges, both result in the same error message. I reinstalled maya several times, but nothing helped. On my notebook it works great.
Does someone have an idea what could be broken or how to fix this?

Here is the error message copied from the script editor:

polyExtrudeFacet -constructionHistory 1 -keepFacesTogether 1 -pvx 0,6875909292 -pvy 4,270287072 -pvz 0,1234324212 -divisions 1 -twist 0 -taper 1 -off 0 -smoothingAngle 30 pCube1.f[1];

// Error: //
// Error: Syntax error //

Try deleting your preferences and then giving it a go.
