Photoshop won't let me save.

I've had a problem where I couldn't save certain (neither a quick save, save as, or export) and would get an "could not save due to program error". I couldn't even copy the layer to another file. This can happen to one or all the files I'm working on at the same time. Sometimes, simply opening and closing will let me save files again, and sometimes I'd have to restart my entire computer. I searched up the problem, and it was suggested to reinstall it. It worked for around 3 days, after which I ran into the same problem again. This has continued as a russian roulette of "when will photoshop stab me in the foot", and I'm looking for a more permanent solution than periodically reinstalling photoshop. Any ideas?
