Problem with Photoshp.exe (Version 7.0) not fully launching?

    This problem *just* started happening last night after I found and removed the
    Blaster virus and ran the Microsoft XP patch file.

    I have a Dell computer running Windows XP and have an upgrade version of
    Photoshop 7.0. Version 7.0 has been upgraded from 6.0 and 4.0 -- which both
    are also still on the computer. The stranger thing is Version 6.0 launches
    just fine.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling 7.0 (restarting the computer in
    between the uninstall/install), renaming the photoshp.exe application file,
    tried launching it from the shortcut on the desktop and even going into Windows
    Explorer and finding the physical file in the folder and double-clicking on
    that. I get the same result no matter what I try. When it stalls, it seems to
    be stalling when "loading brushes".

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm pretty much out of ideas. Any help will
    be greatly appreciated.

    Much thanks.

    do a google for removing the preferences file.
    this should fix the problem.

    The procedure is in the Help files, which can be opened in your browser
    by double-clicking on the HTML files in the Help folder. Photoshop
    doesn't need to be open to access these.

    And while you're at it, upgrade to 7.01 :)

  5. One MAJOR problem....Photoshop 7.0's executable is "photoshop.exe" not
    The executable file you are referencing is for Photoshop 6.0 and earlier!
