For some reason, when I try to use the File browser, Photoshop just shuts down on me. It didn't start suddenly. It began quite some time ago, and with just one particular folder. I figured that folder had too many images in it, so I split it up and it worked fine. But now, slowly over time, it will shut down any time I try to open any folder with file browser, it makes no difference if ther is 1 or 100 images in the folder.
I've been using Photoshop for about 9 years, and have learned a few work-arounds.
I am not low on ram, or hardrive space.
I defrag weekly. I check for spyware daily, and I run virus check weekly, sometimes more often. I have reset my preferences.
I am stumped. Actually, it would be OK if I could just retrain myself to NOT use the file browser, but inevitably, I forget, then crash, and loose my work since the last save. (Fortunately, I save often and more often, but it is still annoying.)
Any advice would be delightful, thanks in advance.
