I’m running Photoshop 7.0 on Windows XP home and it’s been running problem free since I installed it aver a year ago. I’d been working on a document yesterday and, afetr saving it, closed PS. So far so good.
Next time I tried to open PS, it went through the whole boot process but then it closed itself down. I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling, uninstalling in a different folder etc etc with no success. Any ideas?
Thank

SP2? maybe?
Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift while starting PS and the program will reset to default setting

Yeah, Microsoft’s service pack II for XP is so buggy. Glad I don’t use XP!

The same thing is happening to me – does anyone know of a fix?

Are you people sure that you have installed a ‘Help’ file? If yes, there is other ways to initialize it – by entering it direct via Windows Explorer (or Total Commander)
