And what processor exactly? What graphics card? I get the impression you have a conflict with your onboard (intel?) graphics vs. you NVidia card or you may generally be missing a motherboard driver as they may be required for coreXI processors' power management or things like your USB and SATA controllers. The issues sound too severe to be attributed to Adobe software only. check your device manager. I'm quite certain that several of your devices only run with Windows' default drivers in compatibility mode and some devices may even be flagged as missing drivers...
6.00 GB Ram 64bit operating system, AMD Athlon(tm) II x4 630 Processor 2.80 GHz
after further research i found that having wacom isntalled might cause the probelm. I don't use the pen tablet but, i just uninstalled the driver.
i also uninstalled creative suit, and will reinstall some of the programs. they say wacom and adobe aren't compatible.
Any further answers to my problem will be highly appreciated.
could you elaborate more on the drivers part, i'm not that familiar with drivers and how to configure them
Set Nvidia display card as default display card for your computer (you can make these changes from your BIOS settings)
Update your display card driver and your system drivers
