This just happened AGAIN with another file! Help!
You need to troubleshoot what's making your copy of Photoshop crash on your system.
In order to help you have to provide full details, platform, Mac or Win, exact version of the OS, machine specs. For instance if you're trying to run the ancient CS3 on Windows 8, you will have plenty of issues.

Thank you. I appreciate you taking the time to respond and for sharing the article--I did panic. Here are the details of my system:
Model: HP p7-1247c
Processor: AMD A8-3820 APU with Radeon HD Graphics
Installed Memory: 8 GB (7.48 usable)
System Type: 64-bit
Windows 7 Home Premium
I am using Photoshop CS3. It seems that I can work on photos and save them. But I am unable to open them back up. I have tried saving the files as psd and tiff with the same result. The error message is: "cannot complete your request because of a program error"
The interesting thing is that I can open up InDesign and "place" the psd file within InDesign (then export and save as a jpeg). So I don't think the files are necessarily corrupted. I uninstalled Photoshop and reinstalled it last night, but there's no change.
If you have any ideas, I'd appreciate it. Or, should I repost my question with this more complete info? Thank you!
CS3 is not oficially compatible with Win 7. You may need to adjust your settings. Crashes on save mean you have disk issues, either physically with the drive, the system configuration not being up to speed and missing a driver or issues with user privileges/ file permissions.
