Photoshop is up to date.
Performance settings in photoshop are set correctly.
Monitor Profiles are not defective.
Images/Files are not corrupted.
After a fresh restart of my PC Photoshop will function as normal for a short while (1hr appx.) after that it ceases to import/export or do any of it's intended functions. I CANNOT import ANY files. I am not presented with any error messages and it simply doesn't work. Buttons appear to highlight and the toolbars are still accessible, however I cannot continue with my work. If I then restart my computer it will function for a short while again then this will happen.
Things I have done:
Reinstalled Photoshop CS6
Deleted Preferences (Multiple Times)
Contacted Adobe Support in which case they failed to fix the problem.
I am at a null and I don't know what to do and it is costing me money. Someone please help.
Do you have any third party plugins? Have you tried disabling them?
What utility programs and system extensions are you using? Have you tried disabling them?
The fact that it requires you to restart the system means that the problem is almost certainly at the system level (utilities, drivers, system extensions, etc.).
I do not have any third party plugins enabled.
Other programs running:
Razer Synapse 2.0 (Keyboard Controller)
Logitech Gaming Software (Mouse Control)
The mouse/keyboard drivers and AVG are the most likely culprits.
But I bet there are other things running (other drivers, other utilities) that you're missing.
