I have no clue what the reason behind this problem might be. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling CC, clearing preferences, the registry, and I've made sure all drivers are up to date. No such problems occur with other CC apps. I attempted to use older versions of Bridge, but the problems persisted. When I tried 8.1, it started, but basic functionality caused it to crash.
I see no obvious solution to this, I'll be glad for any help.
