Moving this discussion to the Photoshop General Discussion forum.
Can you please provide a few more details. What version of Photoshop are you attempting to utilize? Did it work for you previously? If so what has changed on your system? Do you receive a specific error message when Photoshop crashes?
I am running Windows 8. Loaded from the cloud PS CS6. It worked well for a week and then started crashing when I tried to save a project. Tried to re load the software nut it was the same. Now it crashes at startup.
"Adobe Photoshop CS6 has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will colse the program and notify you if a solution is available."
Thanks for looking into this.
Does it crash on saving any specific project or happens with all the projects? Check the same with new files.
Try resetting the PS CS6 preferences and check if its an issue with corrupt preferences : http://forums.adobe.com/thread/375776
Try to open PS CS6 in Plugin Disabled mode and check the same. For that Press Shift+PS CS6 icon and hit Yes.
It crashes with most files, once in a while it didn't. Now I can't even open Photoshop.
Tried resetting the PS CS6 preferences and I got the same message. Tried to delete the .psp file and there was none.
Tried to open PS CS6 in Plugin Disabled mode and I got the same message.
Maybe rather than ask here you should go get more familiar with your operating system, for example learn how to ask it for Help to do things.
How is it you don't know what hardware is in your computer? Was it a gift?
That's why they invented the Mac. PCs don't work that way. You have to be a bit more involved or you get into "can't get there from here" situations. I don't say it's a good thing, but it's reality.
PS does not work well with 2 graphics cards. Disable the Intell 4000. May have to do a web search to see how that is done on your machine.
For the nVidia card go the the makers website and download the latest driver for your card.
CoolType is part of Photoshop, is it not? I'm not sure removing it is a proper option.
Maybe the thing to do would be to diagnose possible issues with installed fonts...
Just to be clear, CoolType is not a font, it's a subsystem in Photoshop for rendering text. It might be getting corrupted by a bad font (of as yet unknown name) being loaded into Photoshop at startup.
