    Photoshop CS6 freeze the whole PC, Plz help



      I came here after I got to a point where I feel hopeless in fixing my issue, I would totally appreciate the help.


      Month ago, I installed Photoshop cs6 extended on my windows 8 machine. My probelm is simply the following; everytime I run cs6 my whole computer get frozen, so I have to go and force the shoutdown, like cutting the power. Sometimes I get lucky and photoshop works, then for some reason it freezes again.

      I reinstalled it many times, I even reinstalled windows 8. I started to feel that this frequent crashes are even curropting my windows 8 files, in a point that windows 8 sometimes cant get to load from the first time so I hae to repair it. Windows 8 by the way works great with me, until I install and use photoshop. Now I have got a load of work that I cannot do because I cannot run Photoshop properly.


      These are some informaiton about my PC:

      OS: Windows 8

      Application: Photoshop CS6 Extended

      Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 rev. 2.0

      Thanks for the help.
