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?

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.
