            The first thing to realise is that Photoshop 7.0, while it is fabulous software, is 16 years old. This is FOREVER in computer terms, and you're trying to run it with the brand new Windows 10. It's a bit like getting hold of a hundred year old car. It may look nice but it's going to need a lot of hands-on expert attention, quite often.  That said, a lot of people still have this working, while other old software is in many cases as much use as a betamax of your favourite film.


            If you want to solve this yourself you're going to need some basic knowledge. How big is your hard drive, and how much free space is on it? In some cases solving this needs wiping your hard drive.
