I've turned my machine off and back on and also uninstalled and reinstalled Photoshop but the program won't launch.  Task manager shows it running as a background process with a Very High power usage but I'm not seeing it.  I'm on Windows 11.

After uninstalling Photoshop and reinstalling it I am able to open the program if I run it as Administrator.  When I try to open it otherwise it never opens.  Is there a fix for this or will I have to always open it this way?
