          When you ask a question you need to provide some basic information

          -Forum quick start https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-5601

          Mac or Windows, and EXACTLY which version of the operating system?

          Recent Mac AND Windows operating systems have been known to cause "odd" problems

          Are you using a computer Administrator account with full read/write permission?


          CS2 is SO old that unless you are using an equally old computer operating system, you will have problems


          An idea that MAY work to install and/or run old programs in newer Windows... works for some, not for others

          -RIGHT click the program icon or EXE and select a compatibility mode in the pop up option window

          -or Run as Administrator http://forums.adobe.com/thread/969395 to assign FULL Windows permissions may help... says Encore, but sometimes required for ALL Adobe programs (this is NOT the same as using an Administrator account)

            Moving to the Photoshop forum.


            What OS are you using? Windows version 6.1 was Windows 7, right? What version are you using?


            Also, have you considered updating Photoshop? There were some bug fixes to bring CS2 to version 9.0.2, but you're running 9.0.0 (updates here)

                  One suggestion is a system restore. Pick a date before this crash started happening.
