    Stupid Scanner + Photoshop died!
    Today I decided to plug in my HP Scanjet 4670 scanner(which I've always had problems with––Windows, Linux, Mac). After I had problems on all three OSes, I originally decided just not to use it. However, today, I figured I'd give it a try. It had the same problems, and then I uninstalled it.

    Everything went smoothly until I opened up photoshop to do some graphic editing. Everytime I would go File>open, select the file, and then click open it would just hang on me(gave me a little wrist watch, then spinning beach ball). As well, If I go File>New and try to create a new document, same thing.
    I tried re-installing Photoshop. However, it seems everything that I install from the disc appears to not work! (For ex. when I go into the disk, and click the read me(.txt) TextEdit hangs as well. However, all other files associated with text edit(.txt) work fine. Realizing this, I doubted that a fresh install of Photoshop would do anything. I was correct. It did nothing to solve the problems!

    Can you assist me with this!?

    Id recommend using vuescan with that scanner instead of its main drivers which seem to be causing some conflicts or something, also0, hve you tried the basics? delete photoshops prefs, repair permissions, reset pram?

    I haven't looked into Vuescan, as I already put the scanner in the closet... and now I just want photoshop back

    Yes, before I completeley trashed everything with photoshop, I repaired permissions, trashed prefs..etc

    Nothing seems to be solving it..
    I sent an email to my uncle(who happens to be a VP at Adobe) about this, so hopefully I have an answer to share with the community soon!
