After opening photoshop CS2 and a file, photoshop will freeze (program not responding) after several seconds of use of the brush tool.
I have found this does not occur when using it on a regular monitor using a mouse to paint.
It also does not occur when using other paint programs such as GIMP on the cintiq.
All drivers are up to date
A fresh install of photoshop has been done, the problem persists
I have had the task manager open while running to see if it is some kind of resource problem, but photoshop never ends up using any unusually large % of memory or CPU.
System event data for the crash event is pasted below:

I am at a loss as to what the problem is, and I'm pretty much screwed trying to actually make use of it at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have you tried resetting Photoshop preferences
To restore preferences quickly using a keyboard shortcut: Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you start Photoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings. The new preferences files are created the next time you start Photoshop
Wasn't able to get the shortcut to work but directly went into appdata and edited the old preference files, this seems to have solved the problem, Thank you!
In the interest of my own curiosity, is there any understanding of why the preferences would be causing PS to not respond?
