          You need to update PS as you are on the basic version 14.0


          If system crashing look in OS Event Viewer.  See if you can find line stating Faulting Module - - - - -.

            Update Photoshop, you should be on version 14.1.2.


            And your video card driver is over 3 years out of date.  Go to AMD's website and update the driver.

            Also, LogMeIn has caused problems for some users.

              Chris, I have been having this problem over a period of a few months. It has just gotten worse over time. Now, it's got to the stage where I can't save this image I'm working on without this dreaded window.

              stopped working.JPG


              I have been searching, reading, seeking help from Adobe and I'm at my wits end! I updated everything, including my NVIDIA with no difference.

              I even tried removing the "MMXCore.8bx" file which didn't help (sorry don't have Event Log for what happened next.)


              The last thing I tried was...

              Went to add/remove and followed prompts to uninstall Photoshop CC.


              Restarted my system (I didn't quit the CC desktop app. Adobe help said to do that in an email, but I had done it before I received the email which was a reply form a chat help session.)


              Opened Creative Cloud desktop app (Photoshop was gone from installed apps)


              Scrolled down to Photoshop and clicked on "Install"


              Waited over 4 hours while it downloaded.


              Took screenshot which is this....


              ACC photoshop download, install.JPG


              Please note how it says "Up to Date", which is EXACTLY how it was before the uninstall.


              Can you tell me why is everything exactly the same?

              Why are all my filters there, which I installed, are still there?

              Why are all the extra brushes, which I installed, are still there?


              EVERYTHING is exactly the same. Even the errors which I am having!

              What did I do wrong? Can you tell me the correct procedure which I asked Adobe Chat for in the first place!!


              Below, is the error log in which I'm having problems with and is the reason I'm trying to uninstall and re install Photoshop. And also my system info..


              I would really appreciate some help with solving this issue.

                Your problem lies with Faulting module name: MMXCore.8bx.  This was a problem several years ago with Adobe Bridge when user created a Temp file on a different drive than C.  But that but was fixed.  So have you moved any program files since the install?


                The solution for Bridge on 4/12 was:


                Can Bridge work if you run it as administrator? If yes, will it generate a temp file named like “Photoshop Tempxxxxxx” under the root of C drive when Bridge launch? If still yes, it should be a same issue as what others encountered. And we are investigating this issue now.

                • 5. Re: Photoshop CC APPCRASH

                  I keep getting the same error message. Have spoke with Adobe chat numerous times now but without success. The last thing I was to do was set up a new administrator account on my OS and try then. However this failed.


                  I don't know what to do next!? Every time I edit and try to save an image Photoshop CC crashes and I lose all my work.....ALL THE TIME.


                  I've read the above post regarding the same issue with bridge, however I don't fully understand it.


                  Can someone explain if this solution worked, and what exactly it is I need to do.


                  Thank you

                    Having the same problem with AMD Radeon HD 7570 video card. The photoshop application corrupts the ATI.DLL file on opening. We have a Dell 9010. The Bios can be set to auto or select the ATI video card. When we selected the ATI card and rebooted we got an to use the restore feature on Windows. Stopped the restore and reset the BIOs back to auto, restared Windows and photoshop is working fine now. Whatever change was made in the last update to Adobe CC Design seems to have caused this error with ADM ATI cards.


                    Hope this helps some,

                      Go to AMD's website and update your video card driver.

                      Photoshop is not corrupting the DLL, but the DLL has a bug that is causing a crash.

                          That says that you haven't installed the Photoshop updates, and still need to update your AMD video card driver.
