Woops. Forgot the Ps version:
Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 x64
"Program Error" means something unexpected happened.
Do you have any third party plugins installed? Have you tried disabling them?
The only plug-ins installed are a couple Configurator panels. (Do those even qualify as plug-ins?)
Could fonts be causing this?
(Don't know why the name changed in my profile; this is still Rick!)
One way to check is to go toPreferences>Plugins... and disable all the options under "Extension Panels"
Restart after changing the pref and see if the problem goes away.
