    PS CS5.1 suddenly stops working correctly when opening another file

    Digital Crest

      Hi, I have the Creative Suite cs5.1 student version (had it for about a year now), and now recently I have started to encounter a strange bug with Photoshop.

      Sometimes when I have been working in PS for a while and then open another file, the photoshop starts acting weird, resulting in the file looking like this: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14462293/wtf.png

      And if I try to paint anything, it will look pixelated like in this file:  https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14462293/wtf2.png and if I use ctrl+z after painting the paint just looks like this:  https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14462293/wtf3.png

      https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14462293/wtf3.pngthe 2 last named effects will also apply for any images opened before this occurrence, and it happens for any file type.

      I have checked my video card drivers, and they are up to date, so that's not a problem (My graphics card is ATI Radeon 5700 series). I've also run a throughout virus scan with Norton without it finding anything.


      Any advice would be appreciated
