Preferred Solution: Windows apin & features of Photoshop stopped working...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Recently I've discovered that Win 7 taskbar icon features such as displaying progress by color or showing media player controls (play, pause) that support it. It seems applications can not make calls to windows 7 taskbar features because it's a global problem and not just with one application. For example: Media Controls of MusicBee, Spotfiy and TeraCopy's copy/move progress coloring as an icon background. I'm using the default Aero theme.

Music Bee looks like this:
It should have Cover Art and play/pause/stop controls beneath it. Also it's just not related to Music Bee only.

Any way I can fix this?

Download, install declining trial, update then Run a full scan with Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware, run System File Checker to test system files, then continue with the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 reporting back as you go for possible other steps.

If you have a bloated AV, uninstall to test one of the recommended free lightweight ones which will not interfere.

I installed Photoshop 7.0 about 6 months ago with Windows 7, 64-bit operating system. It successfully installed and I have been using it with no issues. Over this weekend, it just stopped working and I get the following error:

"Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable."

I have uninstalled Photoshop and tried to reinstall it but still have the same issue.

1.Have you tried using one of your System Restore points PRIOR to your current problem occurring?

System Restore

2.Have you checked in Event Viewer?

To check for problems you need to do the following.

Event viewer.

Type eventvwr in search and go to the windows log>application tab.
Look for errors that have red in the left hand column that say anything relating to the CURRENT problem.
When you find any make a screenshot and upload them to us.

3. Google is your friend.

I installed Photoshop CS5 last week and began my tutorials on Adobe to learn how to access all the 'What's New' featues in Photoshop CS5. It didn't take long to realize these functions were not available to me. The short-cuts don't work or the options are grayed out.
I have contacted NVIDIA, Adobe, and NAPP Help Desk (as I am a member of NAPP) with no results in solving my problem.

The video card I have is on the approved list with Adobe and everyone at Adobe and NAPP says it should work and access all features in Photoshop. NVIDIA SAYS I NEED A QUADRO FX 1800 video cared. NAPP people say "NO". I don't need that expensive a card.

SO, To the best of my ablity, here is the information you may need to assist/help me. I sure hope someone out there can help.

I may need to upgrade my current video card, NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (with latest updated drivers) to MAXAMIZE all functions of Photoshop CS5 without overkill.

My OS is:
Windows XP Home Edition SP3 32 bit
Intel (R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU
E6850 @ 3.00GHz
3.00 GHz

I believe the video card I have is not allowing me to access any of the new features in Photoshop. (With or without OpenGL feature checked or unchecked) They are either grayed out or the short cuts donít work. I need you to advise me if this line of thinking is correct. The tools I have tried and canít access are:

I have IE7 and suddenly some features stopped working.

1) Home page tab functions except the anti-phishing filter has red X and states " Phishing filter can't check site because Microsoft online service is temporarily unavailable". Filter is enabled.

2) When next tab is open nothing works on the toolbar, it's frozen. Plus the tab hangs and will not close.

3) Opening the browser takes several minutes to display (also Roboform). When I attempt to close browser it hangs or completely freezes.

Besides frustrating, I'm at a loss figuring out what is wrong.
Someone please help

So I finally get my new computer in, which is running on my new 64-bit Vista. I install my favorite program, Photoshop CS3, and decide to try it out a bit. It works just fine. Then I decide to install my tablet which comes included with all my photoshop plug-ins.

This is where everything gets awesome. As I'm starting back up Photoshop I get hit with this.

If you notice, it freezes right as the plug-ins are being put in. I found out that the life-ruining box invading my startup is called DEP. So I tried to disable it going through the command prompt. Everything happened the way it was supposed to happen. I got some sort of success message, and when I checked the DEP status it said that it was disabled. So I try to start up photoshop again. Still, it pops up. I restart my computer after disabling it again. Still, it pops up. If I'm about to hear that I can't use Photoshop with plug-ins because of this 64-bit crap, I'll send my computer back right now.

Is there anything I can possibly do to get this to work?

Hello CouldBeJesus,

Welcome to the forums.

You can disable DEP for a particular program by going to the start menu/control panel (classic view). Click on 'advanced system settings'. Under 'Performance' click settings. 'Data Execution Prevention' tab. There is a warning in the help files that this 'could' allow a virus to enter the computer through the program. It also suggests looking for an update to your program before disabling. Hope it works.

Recently while I am working with Photoshop (CS4 64-bit) the window appears saying "Photoshop has stopped working". Once the program crashes I can't re-open it because the same "stopped working" windows appears on start-up. I haven't been using any other software but the same problem twice appeared with MS Word.
I bought computer 2 weeks ago so I don't want to re-install Windows after such short time.

This problem seems to appear after I installed Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I tried to uninstall Wacom drivers and install older ones but it didn't seem to have effect or I didn't uninstall all Wacom drivers. I is hard to say coz Device manager often doesn't show all Wacom drivers installed.

Do you have any suggestions to this problem?

A:Photoshop CS4 stopped working

If this problem is happening with Word and now CS4 that's an indication with an impending problem with the system. If the system is still under warranty you might have the service department look it over.

By the way what version of Word are you using?

Also can you provide us some system specs?

I have a Pentium 4 3Ghz with 1 MB ram running XP SP2.

I had loaded Adobe Photoshop 5.0 from an original CD a few months ago. It used to
work well. As of a few week's ago, it does not work. It shows a message "Unable
to load PSUT9532.dll Photoshp will not be able to support 16bit plu-ins. Continue
launching Y/N? If I tried to continue, it puts up a blank window and frees. The
strange thing is psut9532.dll exists in the program files/ adobe photoshop directory.

I uninstalled the program. When I used the CD now to re-install, it does not work.
The set-up.exe does not run at all.

The issue is repeatable on two computers I have that run XP. One other computer
I have with Windows ME, adobe photoshop 5.0 runs fine and the set-up CD loads fine

My theory is that there was an recent update to XP lately that caused this incompatibility?
Out of ideas and confused! I would like to photo editing back without spending a
lot for an upgrade.

A:PhotoShop 5.0 stopped working with XP

I would download a good copy of the DLL and replace all instances of it on your computer after a full search. Keep the old ones in the recycle bin so you at least can trace where they came from and restore them if other programs have problems. There are many sites like this: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/P/Psut9532.dll/3.0.42/download.html

Windows has a sharing system for utility files like DLLs. It should be a simple matter of the first program that installs a particular file being the only repository and other programs share that one. It never seems to work exactly as I anticipate. Photoshop may or may not be using the one in the folder. And that DLL might or might not have been removed and reloaded when you uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Another approach is to uninstall, remove the Photoshop folder and then reinstall. That will probably put a good version of the DLL on the computer.

It would also seem that a DLL starting with ps would be used only for Photoshop. That is probably true but you can’t count on that either. Search didn’t’ find it on my C drive at all, so CS must be using a different method of running 16 bit.

Today I deleted Norton antivirus and installed the comcast free version of McAfee anti virus. Hours later when I needed to use Elements it would start but then just sit there forever and never fully load. This happened time and again even after rebooting. Finally I uninstalled Elements and tried to reinstall it. But when I click on the install button it just sits there. I have disabled Mcafee and still no luck. I've rebooted a number of times and still no luck. I'm running XP Home with all the latest updates and a gig of memory. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hello everyone, and thanks in advance.

Using Photoshop 7.01 for Windows, I cannot do now what I have done hundreds of times before: add Type to an image.

Old images with type can be edited with no problem. But with all new files created, the type does not appear on the image. (I have been in the RGB mode).

The only possible cause of the problem (that I can think of) is that I have been using InDesign recently, and perhaps (in InDesign) I have changed the color mode in repsonse to a dialogue box.

I'm perplexed and anxious-- I need my Type Tool to work!.

Suggestions deeply appreciated.


A:Photoshop 7 -- Type Tool Stopped Working

Iíve never had InDesign mess with my PS settings.

In the toolbar are the little boxes arranged with the black box upper left and the white box lower right? Or is the type color you have selected in the upper left box. If the white is in the upper left you print white. The two tiny boxes below and to the left will switch it back if you just want black and white. The double arrows above and to the right will swap the background and foreground.

I hope it is as simple as that.

Hey all, thanks ahead of time for taking a look!

I've had this problem with Adobe Photoshop Extended (CS4 Version 11.0) and Microsoft Paint for about a month now. Anytime I try to "save" or "save as" with either of these programs, Vista produces the "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - Windows is checking for a solution" error. It then, after maybe 15 seconds or so, says "[Photoshop or Paint] has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

This happens when I try to save ANYTHING on either of these programs, but it is restricted to only these two programs. Everything else, including all Microsoft Office software and even irfanview, which is another image editing software, work flawlessly. I do not believe that I downloaded any software prior to this problem. I've searched all over the internet for a solution but I can only find people having trouble saving as JPGs, but I cannot save at all with these programs, normally I can find someone who has solved the same problem and I follow their steps but this has absolutely stumped me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!

I know that some of these have no correlation to the actual issue, but I figured it's worth a shot. Here's all that I've tried to fix it -

Hi, I recently upgraded my PC from Vista to Windows 7.

The update took a while, but so far it has been well worth it. Photoshop worked just fine on Vista when I used it, and so far it has worked perfectly fine on 7. On the other hand, I am stuck in a spot where I keep crashing it and have not found a work around. Now I am wondering if this is related to Windows 7 or something just specific to Photoshop(I have never got it to crash before).

I am a student taking a Photoshop class, so this isn't some hardcore project or anything. I am following a lesson straight out of Adobe's Photoshop CS4 Classroom in a book, book....

Specifically the lesson 9, where we take a smart object, rasterize it, then apply it to a vanishing point filter. It is on this step where I drag a flat image and Photoshop converts it to appear like it belongs on a box, that Photoshop freezes, and windows makes it close down with no other option.

I know I put some technical stuff about photoshop here and this is a windows forum. I just thought maybe someone here would be knowledgeable on both subjects.

If anyone has some suggestions on ways to fix this please let me know. I know I could just stop doing it, but maybe there are other people who reproduce this error or something.

Thanks, Nick

A fix from Microsoft was to try this:

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

Hello :

I have connected my Finepix AX300 camera to my computer via USB port.

My ASUS computer (with Windows 7 Home Premium) is recognizing the pictures via Windows Photo Viewer - I can bring up on screen my photos. However, when I clicked on 'File' I found that all the features (except delete and exit') were grayed out : when I clicked on 'copy' for example, nothing happened.

I also tried bringing up the photos with Irfanview, but again ran into a roadblock : I could see the primary folder for my Finepix AX300 camera, but was unable to access the subfolders containing the pictures.

Can anyone help me get access to my pictures with a view to copying and printing them?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Then the start toobar at the bottom went to a "grey" colour and her wireless internet wouldn't connect (or I coudn't get ethernet to work either) - searching for IP address all the time. Browser seems to be redirecting to other pages as well, not the ones we are searching for. Also when the grey toolbar showed up her sound went. Sometimes if she is lucky when she reboots the normal toolbar returns with sound and she can connect to the internet.

I am having an issue where the windows features under Internet Information Services/World Wide Web Services/Application Development Features will not install.  Specifically those which are clicked on when one clicks on ASP.NET.  All necessary versions
of ASP.NET are installed.  IIS 7 is installed.
In the Event Log there are two errors which are shown in conjunction with this problem.
1. Unable to install counter strings because the SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ASP.NET_64\Performance key could not be opened or accessed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the Win32 error code.
The error code is: 020000000E0E0000
2. Installing the performance counter strings for service ASP.NET_64 (ASP.NET_64) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.
The error code is: 02000000C9120000
I am thinking that the performace key is somehow not accessable due to some security feature.

A:Windows Explorer Stopped Working, Internet Explorer Stopped Working, what DOES work?

Have a look at the events log and make a virus scan too.

Windows forced an upgrade to 10 this afternoon and suddenly I'm unable to use Photoshop 5.5. (Yes, I know it's an old program but it had no issues in Windows 8.1) The program will simply not open.

I can't afford a new version of PS, the one I have fits my needs, and I'm bordering on furious that it's not working due to this upgrade I did not want.

Is there any way to get to the program to work in 10? If not, I want to know how I can roll back to my previous version of Windows since I am incredibly unhappy with the OS so far.

Hi guys, i have a strange problem, i am running Vista home basic 64 bit, and all of a sudden certain programs will not open,Itunes,Photoshop,and windows sidebar....

this is error message..... Adobe photoshop CS6 has stopped working a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

all of these programs used to work fine...

i can surf the net use Nero..etc..etc..

i have tried to reinstall and it makes no difference..

i really have no idea where to start and i dont really want to have to do a total reinstall...

anybody any ideas..??


A:Itunes,Photoshop,Windows Sidebar not working

From your description of which programs won't open, you didn't include Adobe. However, you're getting an Adobe error message. Or, are you saying this happens when you try to launch Adobe?

You said you tried to reinstall. What did you try to reinstall?

Hi, I have a Lenovo W530 on which I reinstalled Windows 7 and lenovo softwares and drivers from scratch. Everything works well but for a very annoying detail: The ctrl+shift+s photoshop keyboard shortcut is not longer responding. It was working just before I did the re-install of Windows with the same photoshop installation package I have tried the following without success:- Installing Windows 10 and all the drivers/software and Photoshop (Decided I didn't like it as my PC was running 10 degrees celcius hotter)- re-installing the keyboard driver from the lenovo website on my fresh Windows 7 install- Switching fn/ctrl keys in the bios back and forth- Running Windows troubleshooter- There are no failing processes/services/exe in the reliability monitor nor in event viewer What works:- other keyboard shortcuts work well in photoshop- assigning another keyboard shortcut to save as in photoshop allows works Well it is minor, but bugging me!

W530, Windows 7 64bit, 256SSD Crucial M4 boot drive, 1tb WD Blue in Ultrabay, 16GB m-sata expresscache drive, NVIDIA K1000M, i7-3630QM processor, 8gb RAM 1600.

Im running Photoshop 5.5 on windows xp & downloaded a pluggin so i can open DDS files & edit them. Pluggin installs & I start doing just that, DDS file saves correctly & i can now play Mount & Blade with my own meshes & their new textures, Life is good, but its getting late so i shutdown & go to bed. Next morning i startup computer but now Photoshop cannot open DDS files? I just get a box pop up saying i need Photoshop 3.0 or higher thats compatable with this plugin, but i have5.5 & it worked last night? (Though sometimes theres no box & it just has to end program) Once thats closed down i get a error message saying:
DDE Server Windowhotoshop.exe - Application Error The instruction at "0x7c9113c0"referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".

Anyone out there that can offer some insite into whats happened to my photoshop?

A:Photoshop 5.5 has stopped opening DDS files?

The clue might be the warning you got from the plug-in after reboot. It expects to see photoshop 3.0. That could imply it is written for version 3 and is actually too old to work properly with the version 5.5 you have. Your best bet is possibly to forget it, uninstall it and find an alternative that is more recent. If it won't uninstall and leave you with a working Photoshop, you will have to reinstall photoshop.

A second clue is the error referring to DDE server. This is a communications technology not supplied by either Photoshop or the plug-in - it is microsoft product and it may be you have a corrupted version, or the add-on has installed .DLL's which have incorrectly overwritten a later version in XP. I can't offer advice on how to update or repair DDE, sorry, but maybe a reinstall of photoshop might do it.

Ahh, back again for more computer troubles. Apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

So, I'm really confused as to how three things have suddenly stopped working out of the blue. My tablet was working perfectly fine earlier, until I restarted my computer. The driver automatically crashes after start up, even after updating the driver. I have also noticed that Windows Photo Viewer and Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 also crash as soon as they're started up.

Any idea how I can fix these sudden problems? It's really frustrating that I can't draw, open photos, OR use Photoshop all of a sudden. Nothing was changed as far as I know for them to stop working.

OK, I am not sure if this is the correct forum, but a search of this forum, the Business Applications forum and the Multimedia forum yielded no results.

I am working on a Dell Inspiron N5010 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 with Intel i5 2.67 GHz processor, 6 GB RAM.

Both Adobe Premiere Elements 9 and Photoshop Elements 9 are installed and were working (for years) up until recently. Both suddenly developed a problem with the Organizer.

If I double click on the desktop icon to open Premiere, and then click on the Organize button, I see this message:

Best if you supply some system specs.Also can you check your event logs to determine what the error was?What graphic setting are you using in NFSMW? Have you tried changing the automatic video and other settings?In the mean time, try a clean install of your video card drivers. NVidia has an option during its install process, not sure about ATI or others.

I have Windows 7 Professional and have a backup drive on my home network. I've had it for years and have a share setup with:
net use y: \\mybackup\public
I have a backup program that backs up files to y: and it has worked for years and years, no problems.  I've changed nothing, other than applying Microsoft's updates when required, and now my backup program can't access this drive.  When I execute
the above command I get this error:
"System error 58 has occurred.  The specified server cannot perform the requested operation."
I've searched around and can't find out what to do.  I have 2 other computers on my home network that execute the exact same command because they run the exact same backup program, and they both have access to the shared drive.  One of those
computers runs Win 7 Professional, the other Win 10.  So, I know it's not the backup drive.  Any ideas?
I also went to my upstairs computer running Win 7 Pro.  I removed the network drive and re-added it...no problem.  I go to my downstairs computer with Win 7 Pro, and if I execute the net use command, or open windows explorer, then right
click on Computer, then map network drive, choose y: and add \\mybackup\public in the folder box, I get the same error.  Any help would be appreciated.
