Preferred Solution: A Way To Make Photoshop Continue 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.)

I'm afraid it sounds like you're up the creek without a paddle.
You have now learned the hard way, Save your work constantly when working on it, more so when it's a large project.

Good morning all. I have a brand new HP desktop with Win7. The HD is very noisy and i want to make a mirror image of my HDD that as time goes along i can continue backing up as i add pictures, favorites etc. I would hate to have to make backup DVD's every week or so. My questions are:

1) Do i HAVE to have aftermarket (paid) software to do this?
2) Can i just use a suitable sized external HD, utilizing the built in backup program built into my PC's Windows 7 OS?

I would rather pay for an external HDD rather than for software i may need support from to get back up and running. If my HDD fails, as soon as i install the new HDD i want to be able to very quickly upload the mirror image to the new drive and be off.

Comments, thoughts, opinions wanted!

A:Best way to make mirror images of your HDD you can continue backups on


You definately do not require paid software, so spend any money on a good external HDD.

For user data, you could try this:

Download: SyncToy 2.1 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

For full system images, I recommend this:

Imaging with free Macrium

Dont know much about webpages but I do know that they consist of links.

So why cant I make up a page on Photoshop which I am familiar with, then just install links from one button to the corresponding page?

or what about MS Word 2003?

can't a page be made up in that, then FTPed to the server?

A:So.. whty CAN'T I use Photoshop to make web pages?

Usually you use an html editor, not a graphics program, to make web pages.

Common ones are FrontPage and Dreamweaver.

A:How do i make bullet points in Photoshop CS2?

Hi Richard,

Me again.

What do you need?

If you are talking about bullets as you have in word, you will have to manufacture one.
Just make a black round circle, or how you want it to look like on a separate layer;duplicate them and use the move tool to make the right size and place them where you want them.

If you want, shoot me over your idea to the email address in my CP.

I bought my this board and processor combo:


for a 2nd computer upstairs that my wife uses for photoshop and internet surfing.

Anyway, it has onboard graphics that work pretty well. I was wondering if getting a video card would speed up photoshop significantly--its pretty quick now, but there is still several seconds delay applying more of the complex filters to the photos.

Any recommendations on a card? It supports 8x/4x.

A:Will AGP video card make significant difference for Photoshop

It wouldn't make any difference unfortunately.
It's the processor that's slowing it down.

Hello. Recently, my iTunes library crashed deleting all my library information and playlists from its file system, yet strangely preserved my music files. Fortunately, however, I used a program called iTunes Exporter to convert my Top Rated playlists which were sorted by order of date added. Right now I still have the .m3u playlist of the songs in the order that they were in the Auto Playlist.

Upon this crash, I have decided to make the jump to Windows Media Player 11. I have transferred all my songs onto WMP 11, and have also transferred the two playlists. There, however, still is a problem remaining. I want to be able to make an Auto Playlist that will automatically add my Top Rated songs and sort them in Descending order of its Date Added, but most importantly, be able to continue on in the Auto Playlist from the list of already sorted 4000+ songs I have in my prior playlist.

Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I thank you for your time in advance.

If I generate a second userkey.psw file using the Win7 utility, will it override an earlier one, even if the password has not changed?

If I make a copy of the userkey.psw file using Windows Explorer and put it on a CD, will it work?

Hey there, the touchpad on my 5 months old E580 Thinkpad didn't work after booting my laptop regularly. The laptop was also weirdly slow in reacting to key strokes on the keyboard. The two implemented mouse keys on the touchpad still work to some degree. Actually a click with two fingers on any are of the touchpad equals a right mouse click. Now, I use the trackpoint to navigate.I tried to update the touchpad drivers, which were already the "newest". I deactivated and activated it again and restarted the laptop, none of which has yielded any result so far. Does anybody have an suggestion of how to solve this problem? Best,Moejo

My brother recently installed CS4 on my computer, a HP Pavillion HDX, but I have a problem whenever I open photoshop on it. The photos look tiled and have lines all over them.

Here's a screenshot


I'm not too sure what sub forum this goes on, so I am putting it on this one as I am running Vista service pack 2.

A:Photoshop CS4 isn't working

Are you able to view the pictures with Windows Photo Gallery. If so ,this would rule out any problem with the .jpg file.

The only other thing would be a botched install. You could try to uninstall then reinstall. To uninstall go to <control panel/programs/uninstall program/Adobe Photoshop CS4>. You simply click on the setup.exe file in the zip folder to reinstall.

If all else fails, here is an Adobe Photoshop forum: http://forums.adobe.com/index.jspa

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.

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&#8217;t count on that either. Search didn&#8217;t&#8217; find it on my C drive at all, so CS must be using a different method of running 16 bit.

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?

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.

Okay, I don't know how this happened. One second it's working fine, the next, I get this error. I go to preview my image in the browser, so I click "Save for Web." The "Save for Web" screen comes up, along with all the options for things that I can adjust. Then I go to click the Internet Explorer "e" button to get the actual preview, and I get this error message that says: "The operation could not be completed because a file by that name already exists."

I have no idea what that has to do with me previewing a file. I've always been able to preview images in the browser, but now it's giving me this error. I tried re-installing PS7, but it doesn't change the problem. I've also refreshed my PS7 prefs file. I honestly have no idea why this is happening, as I said it was working just fine one second, then the next, this happened. If anyone has ever experienced this problem, or knows how to correct it, please let me know!

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.

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:
Rotate View tool,
Sampling Ring,
HUE Color Picker,
Drag and Drop from Mini Bridge.
3D View of the New Br... Read more

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?

I have a Lenovo Y50-70 on Windows 10.  I have no probem at all with any app except Adobe Photoshop CC.  Photoshop starts pretty fast and after I import a couple of pictures, the cursor begins to lag to the point I cannot work and have to exit Photoshop.  For instance, if I click on File, it takes about 2 seconds for the dropdown menu to appear.  Then the cursor would not respond to my mouse movement like it normally does.  Again, it lags about 2 seconds. I have drivers updated for Intel HD 4600 and Nvdia Geforce GTX 860M.  Don't know what else to do and would appreciate your help.  Photoshop CC is not usable on my otherwise fine Lenovo Y50-70 Thank you!

N00b here; please correct me if I do something wrong. =D

My dad and I recently just about completely overhauled my computer; installed the OS from scratch and replaced the motherboard (actually, I think everything got replaced except for a hard drive, but I'm not sure).

But I installed Photoshop 7.0 (from the same CD as I installed it on my other machine) and it's doing weird things. I don't get any error messages or anything, but the color display is wrong. Such as the color picker and every color image (amusing as it would be for Legolas to be green, seeing as he is an elf, that picture is simply not supposed to be that way). Note how Blue hills.jpg is PINK. Yeah. I have NOT messed with any of the color settings - it's all at default, and it's doing this.

Also, when I try to install the 7.0.1 update, it will find the folder that Photoshop 7.0 is in, yet when I click "Next" for it to actually install, it says, "The Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1 Update program cannot find Adobe Photoshop 7.0 in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\ -- Please attempt to locate Adobe Photoshop 7.0 again or cancel the update and install Adobe Photoshop 7.0 from the original disks or CD."

But it IS installed. And in that directory, too. I even uninstalled Photoshop and reinstalled it, and it still gives me that error message. The very same update file DID update Photoshop 7.0 on my old computer (unfortunately, I don't know what video card I had in at ... Read more

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 -
-Reinstalled Photoshop
-Complete System Virus Scan via ESET NOD32 4.0.437.0
-Complete System Virus Scan via ... Read more

A:BSOD/Crashes while working on photoshop/surfing on Firefox/Idling

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
