I can't open existing files in Photoshop. I've tried opening many different files of various types (including .jpgs and .tiffs) the File Menu, going through Lightroom (which works fine), through Bridge, double-clicking files through Explorer, dragging and dropping, using "Recent Files". I don't get any error messages; Photoshop simply doesn't open a new window.
I can create a new file, which creates a new window.
The only error I can find is in the Windows Event log:

I tried uninstalling and re-installing Photoshop, and then the entire CC photography suite. I've got plenty of memory and plenty of disk space.

Any help would be appreciated.
When you open any file Photoshop what you do you see, any error code or may be a black screen? please share the screenshot for the same.
Also, you may try and reset the Photoshop preferences and check if that helps.
This is what I get when I try to load an image (whether by starting PS first, choosing "Open with ->Photoshop" from Windows Explorer, or via Lightroom or Bridge). Note that it's simply the Photoshop app without any files open.
No error message is displayed by Photoshop itself. and nothing gets created in C:\Local\Temp\PhotoshopCrashes when I try to open a file.
I've tried to change the performance and file handling preferences, but it hasn't made any difference.
