Yes, it did originally work. I do not know what is meant by a splash screen.
I do not know what is meant by checking the new user account.
It loads and then a small window says "Adobe Photoshop CS4 has stopped working" with the added "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." My only option is to click on the button that says "Close program."
After updating the graphic card driver(s) and reinstalling CS4, I have no idea what to try next and Adobe told me that they provide no customer support for this at all.
Thank you for any input towards my next attempt at solving this issue.
New user account, means set up a new computer user account and then login in the new account and check ,
Also , check launching bridge as well
Thanks for the suggestions. I think that you are suggesting that I set up a new user account in Win7 and try to run the software. I set up a new standard user account and get the same result: I am unable to run Photoshop or Illustrator or InDesign.
I tried to research checking the launching bridge. From what I found, to check the launching bridge the software has to be running.
Any additional suggestions are appreciated to try and get these programs to run on my computer again. Thank you.
