Thank you Sudarshan. It's aWindows PC; Photoshop CS (v 8) - I know that's old but it has served my needs fine till now.
I can't get PS to open. In the initialisation it gets as far as 'Reading text Global Resrouces ... Done' and hangs. I have scoured user forums and tried ctrl+shift+alt, uninstalling/reinstalling.
Can you scan/ check your fonts for any invalid/ corrupt font registries/ files? This may sometimes be the problem.
Thank you Sudarshan for your kind help. I'm a writer not a technical expert and I realise that this won't be something I can fix myself. So I will try to find someone who can look at the computer/Photoshop for me. But I appreciate your suggestions.
