Windows 7: Adobe Photoshop CS4 not Opening

Adobe Photoshop CS4 not Opening

I just have installed Adobe Photoshop CS4 but whenever I tries to start it it opens but with only menu bar and title bar and doesn't show anything in work area (only shows grey screen) with also mouse in waiting for a long time. When I wait to Photoshop to open properly, it takes lot of time (in minutes). Even then if photoshop has opened properly when I try to close it, it again goes to waiting and I have to close with task manager. Sometimes it also gives repairing the photoshop error. I have repaired it many times, set compatibly to Window XP but still no success .

It was working fine on XP before I upgraded to Windows 7 32 bit. Hopefully I can find solution in this thread

Like in the attachment? Have you updated the program by running the updater?

I already have tried reinstalling many times. I haven't reinstalled by first uninstalling it tough.

Might be worth trying eh. And make sure you update the program, after my last reinstall of 7, there was about 250mb to download for updating it.

Try this, start PS, and (be quick)hold down shift + ctrl + alt, click yes on the window that appears.

Nothing appears .I think it needs Photoshop to start first to make that window appear but my mouse keeps on waiting.

Unstall delete all the files and make a clean install, update and it will probably work

Well since I lost CS6 I thought I would try this. If you are a Graphic Artist and have a PC dedicated to doing graphics then this is the program for you. If not, stay away from it. It is always online and it is not that much better than their older version. So for me it is back to The Gimp,...
