I have a Photoshop CS2 problem, since I reinstalled Windows XP home edition and CS2 it self. When CS2 is launched, I hardly can use it when other programs are active, such as Fire Fox, Media Center, simply browsing trough files and so on. The computer freezes for a couple of seconds and reboots after that.
I have no clue how to solve this, I hope this is familiar to someone that can help me.
Funny things happen to computers over time, excess data garbage builds up and slows things down, or sometimes you end up with little background programs running that you aren't even aware of, and they all eat up your available memory. It could be some of those things bloating up your system.
If that isn't your problem, maybe try giving Photoshop more virtual memory, or try setting Photoshop to fewer undos etc.
Thank you kindly for your reply, Dweller. I gave photoshop more memory now, but at times it suddenly happends again! Same goes for image ready. This is annoying, I might do a total format again sometime, because this is unbelievable annoying!!
(Or I should move on to Painter or something...)
defrag, check for any processes running, and then reformat
its good to do that every year or two anyways
