I downloaded a trial of photoshop. It runs for a minute or so, then a message displays saying that photoshop has stopped. No error codes, just the message. I have exhausted the "try this" stuff that I can find. Any other ideas would be appreciated. I would also like to know what some alternative applications might be. This trial does not give me confidence in Adobe's product.
What does the system crash report show?
I saw a similar question deeper into the forum right after I posted. I followed the fix steps and it took care of the problem.
Thanks for getting back to me. I am good to go.
