Hey guys.. I hit this problem tonight after trying for several hours to open Adobe PS CS5.

Photoshop worked earlier today and i have made no changes on my PC since running PS again.

I am running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 64bit


I have tried Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ALT to delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings File with no success.

I have rebooted my computer several times.

I have ran as administrator.


As far as I can tell it has something to do with KERNELBASE.dll 


You guys are my last chance.. THANK !

    Rather than repeating answers look at this link with the same problem.

    The specific problem is the defaulting module KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17651 located at C:\Windows\syswow64\KERNELBASE.dll


    That can mean a lot of things as stated in the other thread.


    You will just have to go through a process of elimination.  Suggest doing a web search for that problem and see what the solutions are.


    Wish there was a simplier way, perhaps someone else has an idea or two.

    You're running Photoshop 12.0.0 -- you never installed any of the updates.

    Go install the updates now.


    And kernelbase crashes are usually due to drivers: scanners, video card, camera, printer, etc.


    And I'm curious why Photoshop is under "Hacking, mods, C++"?
