    Photoshop "Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error.


      Originally installed adobe photoshop cs. This couldn't be activated and support was contact they advised to uninstall and install adobe photoshop cs2 with a serial  number provided that was provided with the link. CS couldn't be uninstalled due to the following errors 'epmty temp folder' (which was done) 'program may be in use' (it wasn't) 'no internet connectivity' (internet connectivity was active). Support couldn't assist with this. So Cs2 was installed and activated successfully. However as soon as photoshop is started the following error is displayed "Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable."  I've reset prefences and also removed the nvidia video driver after reading a thread photoshop has known issues with nvidia drivers. Also tried logging in an another user. I am now out of ideas as to what to try to get this to work. Can anyone suggest anything that may get this resolved.
