Hi all,
I have a friend who has been using Photoshop 7 for some years, and has taught me a fair bit on using it.
But after upgrading her computer, she said it had disappeared! So I went to have a look, after reinstalling it in its default state, after opening the programme, it starts loading and the splash screen appears then it just disappears every time it is tried.
I temporally turned off the firewall in case there was a conflict but it did the same.
I cannot seem to see any reason for this can anyone please help?

Not sure about PS7 but later versions can refuse to start after system hardware upgrades as it no longer recognises its original installation environment and needs to be reactivated (PS7 shouldn’t)
You could have a corrupt preference file and a reinstallation does not correct this.
You need to delete the prefs file by holding down the control, alt and shift keys whilst staring PS.
It’s a timing thing and if you get it right you will be asked if you want to delete this file, you do, a new one will be created in its place.
