I tried to launch Photoshop 2021 and instead I get a small pop-up stating: 
"Could not complete your request because Photoshop was unable to parse the PostScript."

It won't even let me launch Adobe Creative Cloud; nothing happens after I click on it.

Any ideas? Should I uninstall and then reinstall the whole suite?
I am running a Dell XPS with Windows 10.

It was working fine over the weekend.

Try resetting your Photoshop Preferences if Photoshop was working on you machine. If Creative Cloud Desktop does not start  download Creative Cloud desktop and reinstall it.

This just happened to me also - Photoshop 2021 was giving this error and Photoshop 2020 just wouldn't launch at all with no error. Seems to be related to an update to the Creative Cloud app. I was able to open the Creative Cloud app and click [Open] next to photoshop and get it to launch - but launching the normal way from the Start menu isn't working.

I am also experiencing this same issue.  I'll keep following this thread in hopes for a solution.
