Windows 7: Adobe Photoshop CS3E crashes when being closed.

Adobe Photoshop CS3E crashes when being closed.

As the title says, Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended crashes every time I quit out of it, and I don't know why. It's pretty annoying especially when it was fine closing a few days back.

Anyone got any idea what's going on? Cause I'm stumped as to why Photoshop just dies in the ass every time I close it.

I'll probably have to upgrade to Photoshop CS4 again soon but I haven't had the opportunity to download it yet.

I don't get any error codes, every time I hit that [X] button on the top right corner of the window, or hit Ctrl + Q to quit Photoshop, it crashes. Quitting is the only thing that makes Photoshop crash and it's annoying.

I'm sure you've fixed this by now, but it may help others to know that this is usually a corrupt preferences file. Delete or rename the 'Adobe Photoshop CS Prefs.psp' file at your equivalent of C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings\

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,...
