    Photoshop became unusably slow overnight!


      I have been using Photoshop CS4 for about 6 or 7 years now without (m)any issues.


      However upon starting the program today. It is so slow even navigating the menus has a 2-3 second delay. It's become completely unusable simply on starting up.


      The things I've tried so far are,
      Restarting PC
      Running as admin
      Reinstalling Photoshop
      Deleting preference file
      Updating Graphics drivers for Nvidia
      Disabling openGL in photoshop
      Increasing allowed memory

      Changing and allowing of 3 possible scratch disks

      All with absolutely no change.


      The only thing I did between uses of photoshop that I can think of is installing Far cry 5 on a completely seperate drive from Photoshop so I don't see how that could be related.





      My resource monitor shows 0.00 % used on Photoshop with no document open.
      Barely any memory used (120 MB) yet it's still slow as molasses.


      Please help!
