This has been an issue for quite sometime and I simply cannot get to the bottom of it.  I have tried ALL the advised solutions.  Starting from deleting Prefs right through to complete removal of PS and reinstall.  I am OCD about keeping up to date on drivers, apps, this and that.  PS will not open like I expect.  It's Ctrl+Shift+Alt or compatibility mode ot just keep on trying and eventually I get lucky.  Loads painfully slowly too.  I check GPU compatibilty once loaded and there are no problems...all green ticks - MX250 GPU (not the best I know but PS says it's okay and so does LR.  It's got to the point now where I am going to cancel my subscription but I don't want to just yet.  Does anyoe know what this screenshot is telling me apart from the obvious.

The Splash Screen gets to Reading Prefs and then crashes.  I have tried Shift+PS to bypass - makes no difference.  While I am typing this post I tried Shift+PS - it crashed on Reading Prefs.  Followed that with C+S+A+PS - it loads and now that I have it loaded here is the Compatibility Check

Is there any hope I can get PS working?
By the way LR I have no issues whatsoever.

 

Cheers - Alan

Which (exact) version of Photoshop and OS?

How much RAM and spare hard disk capacity do you have?

Did you reset the preferences under the General tab in Photoshop preferences?

Did you reset the preferences exactly as I indicated and then closed and reopened the application?

I suggest you install an earlier version of Photoshop and use that until the issue with the current version is resolved.

How far back should I go because I have done at least 4 updates since this all started?
