I've tried nearly everything to get Photoshop to open. I've tried putting a ~ in front of the twian device, as suggested on another site. I've tried running licence recovery as suggested in other places. All of these things seem to work temporarily, and then photoshop goes back to freezing when I try to open it again. I used to be able to re-run the licence recovery and that would fix it for a while, but now that doesn't even work.
I have tried reinstalling. The install runs flawlessly. (It's an install of Adobe Creative Suite Extended CS3). Nothing seems to work.
The splash screen comes up, it runs through initialization, and then just opens to a blank screen with a blank grey area over each of the tool boxes. The entire system slows down to a crawl - it takes about 2 minutes for even so much as a right click to work. I can click on the X to close photoshop, but it takes about 3 minutes to respond. Killing it through task manager takes even longer.
Help! I am going insane looking for answers on the googles.
