    Sounds like you improperly copied old plug-ins into your Plug-Ins folder, or you pointed Photoshop to an additional plug-ins folder.


    Go back and delete all the plug-ins you improperly installed yourself, uncheck the additional plug-in folder option, and only install fresh, updated plug-ins that are guaranteed compatible with your exact version of the OS from the developers' web sites and using their installers as per their instructions.


    All necessary Adobe plug-ins are already built in where you cannot see them and mess with them, so you don't have to install any Adobe plug-ins yourself.


    You gave us no information whatsoever, so I can't advise you beyond this.

    Have you tried trashing your Photoshop preferences yet?


    To re-create the preferences files for Photoshop, start the application while holding down Ctrl+Alt+Shift (Windows) or Command+Option+Shift (Mac OS). Then, click Yes to the message, "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings file?"


    New prefs will be cretaed when you re-launch Photoshop.

    Re-installing without trashing and rebuilding your prefs files is futile.


    If you end up having to delete preferences files manual, this Adobe tech doc helps:
