Photoshop CS4 shuts down when I access type tool

Recently, I started having a problem that I wasn't having before.  I can import photos from Bridge and edit and run actions, but as soon as I hit the Type tool, photoshop shuts down.  When I open it back up, it has reverted back to original format and no settings are saved, actions loaded, etc.  This error also occurs when importing previously made .psd files.  Help?

The minute I select the Type tool, it shuts down (error reads:  Adobe Photoshop CS4 has stopped working). 
As far as updates, I am not sure if I am getting them or not. ?
I have not changed any fonts lately.  
To give some more history:  I am a PC user.  I have two solid state hard drives (one for programs and one for data) and also multiple other drives I use.  A few months ago, I randomly started having problems in Bridge.  It wouldn't load.  I think it was an internal permissions error, but we never could figure it out.  Trying lots of things (reinstalled it several times), I even upgraded one of my solid state drives to make more space in case that was the problem.  Still not working, I downloaded the trial version of CS6 (which I am planning on upgrading to real soon) and as soon as I downloaded that, my CS4 bridge started working.  Weird!  So both sets worked.  Once my CS6 trial expired, I had to go back to using CS4.  However, right after that is when this problem started.  I have no idea where to even begin to see what is wrong and until I can afford the upgrade, am not sure what to do.  I do still have the CS6 software installed (although it is not licensed and won't launch) - should I remove that and see if that is a conflict somehow?

    7. If you are using more than one video adapter, remove the additional cards.
    Multiple video adapters can cause problems when OpenGL and Photoshop use the GPU. It's best to connect two (or more) monitors into one video adapter. If you have to use more than one video adapter, make sure that they are the same make and model. Also make sure that they both support the same versions of OpenGL and Shader Model. Otherwise, crashes and other problems can occur in Photoshop.
    Note: Using two video adapters does not enhance Photoshop's performance.

    On some systems I can set the defualt printer to another printer and when I print I then select the printer I want to print too, wiht no issues but if the printer in question is the default printer then CS4 just crashes. The Printer is a Ricoh 3260C. The printer is a network printer connected to a print server. Users have Admin rights on the local PC. If anybody has any ideas on this problem I could use some help. I have removed and reinstalled driver a few times with no luck. Even tried going back to old driver as well still no luck. All other adobe products seem to work fine.
    Thanks
    Adam Raff

    Thanks for the help John but the problem is not that simple. One of my users now has no printer loaded when he starts Photoshop. when he starts it it says please install print drivers. I have uninstalled photoshop with no luck. Since this printer is the primay printer for the Art department I need it to print to that printer. I am using a standard PCL5 driver which is from 2008. there are no newer drivers I have also found that if I change the orientation (portrait or landscape) of the print then it will also print fine. If anybody has any ideas please let me know
    Thanks

    The first error has nothing to do with Photoshop - that's some .NET application.
    The second error is most likely connected to a third party plugin or driver.
    And you're running Photoshop CC (14.x) instead of the current Photoshop CC 2014 (15.x).

  • Can anyone answer why photoshop CS3 shuts down when I use the scanner?

    Can anyone help me with why photoshop CS3 shuts down when I use the scanner? I recently upgraded to OS X Yosemite.

    Ask in the PS forum and be much more specific. You have not provided exact system information, crash logs, scanner details. That said, this may be a compatibility issue that can't be overcome.

  • Photoshop CS4  shuts down only when creating new project.

    I've had CS4 web premium since nov. 08 and everything worked fine until the most recent update from adobe.
    I ONLY have this problem with Photoshop cs4: when creating a new project after selecting the aspects (name, width, hight, etc.) when you press ok it shuts down and no error is given as to why it shut down, it just does.
    opening documents that had been created prior to the last update isn't a problem, I'm able to do everything Photoshop cs4 has to offer.
    I can also open a file started in another program and edit them in PS CS4 (ie: fireworks , or AI).
    but for some reason if I want to start a project in photoshop it just shuts down, never used to happen. any clues? any one else have a similar problem and know how to fix this?
    running on windows XP

    I think you mean a new docuement - Photoshop doesn't have "projects".
    Photoshop shouldn't "shut down" - there should be some message about a crash.
    And the most likely causes at that point are OpenGL (try turning it off in prefs) and your default printer driver (try changing default printers).

  • Photoshop CS5 shuts down when I try to open a file or save something.

    I'm not sure what I have done, but I just used it a few days ago with no problems. I could open files from the file menu and save-as things. Now when I try to open a file from my documents folder it shuts down. What is the problem. I have tried to uninstall photoshop and reinstall with a few things that are now working (something about the color scheme had to be switched to windows 7 basic and I couldn't save-as things), but this one problem is still there.  Any help? I am super computer illiterate, so if you talk about third party plug-ins or things like that, I have no clue what that means.
    Thanks

  • PS CS4 shuts down when opening a new document in Windows Vista 32 bit

    It worked fine for many years ... I recently had to do a system restore, start from scratch installing all programs.
    Now PS has problems (everything else works fine in CS4 as far as I know).
    It opens in the regular screen ....until I open a new photo. The JPEG appears briefly ... then the program shuts down.
    I performed the color profile rollback, reinstalled like I was told to by Adobe Support Advisor ... still doesn't work. Extremely frustrating. Since the rollback, it reinstalls "With Errors". ???
    I am on Windows Vista 32-bit, 4GB RAM with SP 2 installed. I have been around the web reading comments on forums, nothing is working. To me it seems like a simple fix ... but I just need to know what to do. *I am highly reluctant to go into the reg settings and start editing, like some suggest on these forums. That is just asking for trouble and having to do another painful full system restore.
    The suite has worked very well for years ... until now. And just with PS I am having the problems ??? I don't get it. Troubleshooting not my specialty.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    It seems that this is the good old "I think it's 64bit" error. It tries to install 64bit components on your 32bit system. This specifically comes down to some DLLs on your system being missing or the wrong version, possibly even a hardware driver returning some false info (processor controlelr etc.) I'd check Windows Update and verify the SP2 is installed correctly. Also make sure your MSVC 2008 runtime and possibly .NET 1.1 are isntalled correctly. Verify in your device manager that the CPU is detected correctly and Windows isn't running in some sort of compatibility mode. if there came a specific set of drivers with your motehrboard, installing them alone might fix a lot of things, as then you actualyl may also see Windows Update install some components for the first time that may be missing currently...
