Photoshop CS2 not responding (Win10)

I have downloaded the free version Photoshop CS2 since I just wanted to try out Photoshop without costs (I am using Windows 10). The installation worked perfectly, I installed all the Photoshop files into a folder on my (D:) directory.

But when I want to open it, the program immediately freezes after the UI has loaded. I have re-installed the program about five times now, and it always ends up not responding.

Another thing to note is that Adobe ImageReady CS2, which got downloaded together with Adobe Photoshop CS2 works perfectly fine without any problems.

Can anyone help?

There is no free version.  There is other free software that is not from Adobe.

An Adobe alternative is Photoshop Elements, not free, but reasonably priced.

Hi

Photoshop CS2 is obsolete, dead as a Dodo and has not been available from Adobe for many many years and there's certainly no free version either

There has never been Free version of Photoshop CS2.  Also Adobe has removed the CS2 Activation servers from the web.  So even if you were able to download Adobe's CS2 installer the trial version the installer would install could not be activated after the trial period.  CS2 also does not work well on Windows 10....

Okay, thank you for your response. I must have stumbled upon some false / outdated information while trying to find a free version of Adobe Photoshop. Is there any other option to use (maybe an older version of) Photoshop without having to pay a lot? I am a student who would like to get into graphic design at some point soon, but I don't really want to spend big money yet.
