    I cannot use 'Canvas Size' in my AP CS anymore. Everything becomes greyed
    out and locked (except for tasks in the column 'Window') and I have to use
    Ctrl-Alt-Del to close the program.

    Can I simply refresh AP with the original CD or do I have to uninstall
    everything first?

    Hmmm.. I have to confress that I have never used the "Canvas Size"
    command, and didn't know its existing until reading your message. So I have
    no experience to be any help on this.

    About installing, if you think the "Canvas Size" command is the root of
    problem then it may be safe to uninstall first then reinstall from fresh. Or
    you may just try to reinstall over the existing one, many programs may have
    option to repair the damage of existing (they pretty much reinstall but
    keeping the setting), and some just reinstall the whole thing with out
    removing the registry etc... Heck, many uninstall program including
    Windows' uninstall program may not be able to remove all registry info.

    So the answer is

    NO, you don't have to in general.

    YES, in some case you may have to.

    And yet, when you should stop here, you don't.
    Do you know anything about computers or do you just pull these idiocies
    out of your ass on demand?
    Joel doesn't have a fucking clue and never does. Anything he offers as
    help should be considered stupid and useless at best, dangerous at its
    worst.
    Seriously, stop trying to help until you have a clue.

    This may give me the permission to call you stupid.
    I don't read but don't think it will give more idea than what I told you.

    Now it's your turn to tell me to go read.

    Nope! that's my PISSING. Now, you you know the meaning of "Image Size
    COMMAND" vs SIZE of IMAGE?

    You've never needed permission to be an idiot in the past, why look for
    it now?
    That's at least the 2nd time you've refused to educate yourself when
    you've been proven to be an idiot.
    I'm beginning to believe you're too stupid for it to do you any good.

    You really think I wanna fight with your type?
    That's why I call you stupid.

    And this is what the stupid forgot to quote

    Someone with a brain who's IQ is larger than his shoe size? No, you
    don't want to fight with someone like that. You should start smaller.
    Try arguing with moss or a mushroom. Once you've won a few of those then
    try some higher life forms.
    Because he's smarter than you?
    So you're standing by your waffling statement of both yes and no as an
    answer? You are fucking retarded.

    Thanks to Joel for his fast answer. I had the same vague notions about
    reinstalling from fresh/reinstalling over the existing program, which was my
    reason for asking here, Sorry, Joel, your answer didn't make me any wiser.

    Thanks to John Stafford for the otherwise very usable link to 'How to
    delete/reset Photoshop preferences'. Sadly enough it contains no solution to
    my problem with 'Image - Canvas Size', maybe because it's about a command,
    not a tool. I know removing the Preference File doesn't work for me, because
    I tried it out last Friday before annoying this group with my question.

    So unless somebody comes up with another suggestion, I'll just try to see if
    I can install over the existing program.
    I will let you know the outcome.

    You should have known that Adobe or any all software companies can't have
    all solutions for all problems, so they pretty much use the very general
    information for almost all issues.

    The RESET usually reset some setting which may cause some problem, but if
    some file get damaged or something is more than resetting then you may not
    only have to reinstall, but in some case you may even have to find some util
    to remove all registries.

    And as I have mentioned that installing over the existing one might and
    might not work.

    Reinstalling from fresh has more chance, but there may be a small chance
    that it may not work because of something in registry, or your Photoshop
    conflicts with some programs installed in your system.

    In general, some anti-virus program can cause problem, and years ago
    Norton was a well known program causing problem to many programs, and
    Photoshop was one of them. Later and current, some version of ZoneAlarm may
    cause problem to some program (especially losing internet connection).

    And I don't think this will make you any wiser either, but that's life.

    Don't be a fool, just re-read what you forgot to quote.

    You are a dangerous and useless idiot. You spout off half facts you've
    gleaned from who knows where (seeing as you refuse to follow any links
    people have provided to CORRECT information) along with guesses and
    clearly have no computer knowledge beyond finding the power button.

    And here is the outcome::

    Installing over the existing program did not remove the error.

    Removing the old AP CS (keeping only activation details)
    did the trick.

    I planned to make a list of the files to see if I could spot the
    faulty one(s) by comparing details with the new installation,
    but Karen's Directory Printer told me AP CS maps alone
    would result in 83 pages to print, so I resisted the temptation.
