Solved: Photoshop Stops Working After Reading Text Global Resources – Solution 2

Problem in photoshop CS and CS2 have started to act weird. It was working fine before, but now it gets stucks at the splashing screen “Reading Text Global Resources… ” every time I start photoshop.

You see, when photoshop is initializing(starting), it loads your preference file located at:

C:Documents and SettingsuserApplication DataAdobePhotoshop8.0Adobe Photoshop CS Settings

the photoshop preference file is called: Adobe Photoshop CS Prefs.psp


Follow these steps:

1. Make sure your photoshop is not running. (or hanged) you can kill it with windows task manager by hitting control-alt-delete and select the task manager button.

2. find the file called “Adobe Photoshop CS Prefs.psp” in the following folder:

C:Documents and SettingsuserApplication DataAdobePhotoshop8.0Adobe Photoshop CS Settings

3. Now select the all files in that folder cut them and paste them somewhere else.

4. Start photoshop, now it should load completely and it will prompt you to customize your color settings. You can click Yes or No.

5. If everything work fine, you can delete all the file that cut and copied from settings folder or else just paste them back in the same folder and try Solution 1

Hope this helps. If you have any comments or questions, you can post them here.
