After screwing around with this problem, I've lost patience and thrown in the towel. I'm going with a Zamzar.com subscription for $6.75/month. Since I am a fine art photographer and not in a high pressure/high volume environment, the more deliberate process offered at Zamzar makes eminently good sense. That's one less set of PS idiosyncrasies to deal with.
I too have this problem and it infuriating
My IMAC early 2008 is configured:
OS X El Capitan ver 10.11.6
Processor: 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 6GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256 MB
Fortunately I CAN use ON1 to edit my RAW files but prefer using Adobe Camera RAW and Photoshop CC
Really looking forward to Adobe fixing this problem or coming up with a way to re-install a previous working version of Adobe Camera RAW until they can address the problem and fix it !
"Same Freeze-Up Problem" happening during a tight photo deadline! Ugh!
Problem start after updating to Photoshop CC 2017 via the Creative Cloud App.
Luckily I still have Adobe PSD CS6 to bypass the problem for now. However, The CC App. will not update the PSD CS6 - it will download 100% but "No Cigar"
The remedy prescribed: “Rename the 1.0 folder (for example, to 1.0.old). Then reinstall the update.” - Which didn’t help and just made a mess of doing anything in Photoshop - so I restored the AAMUpdater to original settings.
I don’t know if this has anything to do with PSD CC2017 freezing up my computer, or am I chasing the wrong rabbit.
The has been happening to many people for owe a week know. I wish Adobe would release a patch or something so I can get on with my workflow so I oblige my deadline.

Same problem on an Early 2008 Mac Pro running Mmac OS 10.11.6, which i have seemed to solve by opening Bridge, select "Camera Raw Preferences...", then under "Performance" DESELECT "Use Graphics Processor"
Thank you sooooo much! I have been stuck in suspended animation for the pas week. You are a lifesaver.
If I may inquire: How does the use of the Graphics Processor freeze up Camera Raw?
This solution worked perfectly. Thank you!
I too would like to know whythe use of the Graphics Processor freeze up Camera Raw?
That did it THANK YOU!! I was about to contact Adobe tech support but still having issues with my last experience so I googled it and all fixed!! I also disable the graphic accelerator in PSCC did help it had to be done in Bridge.
Thanks again for the correct fix.
