    Photoshop CS4 crashed today, won't open [fixed]
    So I've had photoshop CS4 and adobe master collection on my macbook since last december. They always worked perfectly until today

    today I was working on a Powerpoint for school using Microsoft PowerPoint 2008 for Mac. I was editing a picture in photoshop to use in the pwrpoint and photoshop just froze up. I force-quit it and then went back to my powerpoint. My powerpoint then closed too!

    luckily i saved just before, and i opened my powerpoint up again

    but when i clicked on photoshop it bounced a few times then said that an error occurred and it closed. this error just repeated. I then tried adobe illustrator and it crashed before opening also. So I uninstalled CS4 Master Collection. I reinstalled Photoshop and it still crashed. looking around the internet told me to turn off airport and disable internet connections but when i do that, it loads the blue loading screen then says Could not initialize photoshop because there is not enough memory (RAM). This is very weird because I have never ever had a problem with low memory (I have 4GB)

    so I closed everything except itunes and opened it and it gives the error message "Photoshop quit unexpectedly. click to report, blah blah, relaunch..."


    so now i am freaking out because i cant get it to work and my project is due in 23 hours

    any help will be appreciated

    remember I was running powerpoint and photoshop at the same time

    first thing to do is reboot the machine
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
