Photoshop CC Locking Up

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
Hello,
I had PS CS6 since it came out, and it was steady as a rock. Ever since I've moved to PS CC, it locks up about every 30-60 minutes. It doesn't crash, just freezes. I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del and start the task manager and kill the application there to start over. Anybody else experienceing this? I'm running windows 7 on the same machine that had CS6 on it, and I'm not doing anything different than I used to do with CS6. I've applied all the patches that are available in CC.....
Thanks for any help or pointers.
Doug

dswebb, Looks like PS is not getting the required resources. Reboot the machine and try the below suggestions.
Lets optimize PS for best performance and check. http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/gpu-opengl-support-photoshop-cs4.html
Try resetting the PS CC preferences and check if it's an issue with corrupt preferences : http://forums.adobe.com/thread/375776
Try to open PS CC in Plugin Disabled mode and check the same. For that Press Shift+PS CC icon and hit Yes.
Please feel free to respond to this thread if you have any questions about the steps listed within the document. If you could also respond with the specific error message you receive, It would be appreciated.
