That's because something in Windows is causing the problem. The most common is Lavasoft's Web Companion.
If you look at Control Panel > Add/Remove software, look for "Web companion" and uninstall it. Restart and see if that solves it.
I'm having the same problem I uninstalled Web Companion, held down Alt-Shift-Ctrl and reset settings and restarted my computer with no success. Any other suggestions?
I'm using the 7 day trial (not overly impressed so far. Can't imagine actually paying for a problem riddled program)
Windows 8 64 bit
When a program stops working in Photoshop, you need to look for the Faulting Module.
I would recommend you to check event viewer logs, look for event errors after Photoshop crashes. Follow these steps to access Event Viewer.
1. Go to the Start Screen.
2. Type in Event Viewer.
3. This will bring up the Event Viewer box. Click to open the Event Viewer.
4. In the left pane, expand Windows Logs.
5. Click on Application and System log. Highlight the first event in the log and use your arrow keys to scroll down. Most of your event will be in formation. You may see Yellow Warnings or Red Errors. If you see a red error, you can double click on it to bring it up and copy the contents to a document.
Then copy and paste it into your reply.
