Photoshop CS3 (Wndows XP) Crashes when I open more than one document.

The last couple of weeks at work have been HELL! All of a sudden Photoshop started bombing out any time I tried to have more than one image open at a time.

If I opened 2 or more images at the same time... CRASH!
If I created two new images... CRASH!
If I created one image then opened another from disk... CRASH!
If I opened an image from disk then created a new one... CRASH!

Why? Because I'd recently deleted a printer and set a new one as my default.

I just reinstalled Photoshop.. still the same.

Simply changing the default printer however; That sorted it out...
Come on Adobe, such an amature piece of codeing... How can opening multiple documents rely on the default printer... sort it out!

  1. Thanks a lot. This helped me a lot.

  2. Dumb problem, smart post. Thanks for the assist, that was driving me nuts trying to figure it out.

  3. I couldn't believe this post was real! But it solved my problem. Thanks.

    PS. This post is valid for Windows Vista also.

  4. Solved my issue, too! Thanks for the post.

  5. Thanks, I simply cannot believe this fixed it...

  6. WOW! You saved the day. I was about ready to throw my brand-new Precision M6400 to the sharks. Same symptoms and the same frustration for days.

    Luckily, you've pointed me (and several others, I'm sure) into the right direction.

    Thank you!

  7. Incredible....I was panicing, uninstalling the whole cs3 suite and reinstalling...and changing my default printer solved it - how stupid!

    but boy...THANKS!

  8. How amazing Photoshop is...and something this small and minute could cause so many problems. Thank you for your post, you saved me so much time and trouble trying to solve this!!

  9. That was the most insane fix i have seen. Great post and enormous thx

  10. Thanks for the post--this little glitch was really starting to tick me off!

  11. Only started doing this today? Been working fine for a year! Anybody else install autocad at all? That's the only thing I did differently! Great Post BTW!

  12. you sir are a genious. Now I just need to work out how to make it work with the old default printer. You wouldn't know a quick fix to that as well would you? :p

  13. That's just crazy! It worked for me too. Just got brand new laptops at the place where I work, I'm probably the only who will use CS3. What a pain for the last month. Thanks for the fix.

  14. you are absolutly amazing. it worked and i was going through uninstalling and reinstalling for still the same result. thank you so much! and seriously adobe...

  15. That is amazing I have been cursing photoshop for so long and just thought to google the error! So simple and so frustrating. Thank you so very much! :-)

  16. Worked for me too. Could NOT believe it was such a simple fix.

  17. Did the trick for me too. Just follow the steps outlined in the Adobe document.

  18. Thanks for this tip!

    It amazes me how Adobe manages to create software that can crash because of something like this. I mean opening files should have nothing to do with printing. Freakin' amateur hour..
