First, I have to say it's very disappointed to be using a "community forum" for help with a product from a giant like Adobe. That I can't get to a support person is not encouraging.
I haven't had this problem in the past (earlier versions of Photoshop) but Photoshop is almost unusable now with my Intuos 3 tablet. It freezes up for long periods, seemingly irrespective of whatever tool I am using in the program. I have no idea what it is doing or trying to do.
I haven't noticed any other programs have difficult with the tablet. I believe am using the latest drivers, as I checked that recently. I am running Windows 10 w/16GB of RAM.
Which version of Photoshop I'm disappointed you did not read the guide lines and you do not know what drivers you have installed.
