Hello.

Last two days I experience some troubles with Lightroom Classic and Photoshop. It freeze a few seconds when I open them and could not work at all. I have to close the program from Task manager and to open them again. Is it a programm issue? How could I fix it? 

Thank you in advance for your ideas.

The first thing that you should try is to switch off the GPU support from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps to fix the issue.

Go to Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" > Restart Lightroom.

If Lightroom doesn't start correctly the please see "Solution 2" in the document behind the second link.

Another step is to try to reset the Lightroom preferences.

It's recommended to backup your preferences before you reset the preferences to the default settings:
