Photoshop, Win7 and error 0xc0000006


New Member
I've got this error with starting PS CS3 after using it for several weeks without any problems.
Photoshop.exe - Application Error
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000006). Click OK to close the application.
I'm currently using build 7100, and has tried reinstalling, repair the program, everything I've done with errors before. I've not formatting and reinstalling Win7, have some files and a game I want to keep without having to use several hours for downloading updates...

I have no recovery-point, got this error two weeks ago, but have been away and installed some other programs lately.. The error started after the system didn't respond and I had to use the "sweedish method" as we call it in Norway, turn off and on the power.


Found the win7 dvd and upgraded the installation (repaired), so now it's working again :)
