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

Actualyl they still might be. Having the latest and newest is not always the most reliable. According to Noel Carboni, the best driver for ATI cards and any version of PS at this point is Catalyst 12.8, not the latest 12.10. So in fact you may simply need to downgrade to fix these problems.
