Photoshop CS3 wont start

Posted 08 June 2008 - 06:04 AM

Ok so when ever I try to open my copy of Photoshop which worked when I first installed it (as I could activate the thing), has stopped working everytime I start it it comes up with the loading box. Then it goes grey (on my vista 64 bit) and a small text box comes up saying Adobe Photoshop has stopped working. (Check soloution, Close, Debug) this is the error message it gives :-

Try a repair install and hopefully that should correct the problem, Or restart the system a few times. A few programs in cs3 master collection stop working and usually restarting the system fixes the problem.

I had a similar problem before...

By uninstalling it, you would be removing all of the updates. Then, by installing again from the disc, you would be starting from the version that you know worked.

That doesn't work unfortunatly it still has the same problem, even if I uninstall the whole of CS 3 it still wont work when I re-install it.

Its a little annoying as I need it cause I have three websites to design and build at the moment so I have had to re-install CS2 which works fine(I have made sure it wont update). No problems.
