I have Photoshop 5.5 and without any obvious cause it started crashing on startup. It crashes at the same spot every time which is as it is loading the ICC engine. I say it crashes what it does exactly is just disappear, no message of any kind. I have reloaded the software but to no avail. I think it has something to do with monitor settings but am not even close to knowing anything about software problems. I have made no changes in my system besides installing a 3D program and some addons for it. I am running WindowsXP, with and AMD AthlonXP +1900, 1024 megs of DDR ram, GeForce 3 Ti 500 video card, 100gigs of hard drive space with more than half available.

Sounds like a bad ICC profile. Dig through your windows color profiles, and try removing any that you dont use. If that doesnt work, remove the ones you do use until you find the culprit.

Thank you very much Mister Weed, some how my ICC profile was changed, I reloaded my Monitor software and it put it back to the correct one and now Photoshop works just fine. You were dead on, Photoshop has always worked perfectly from the day I got it so I was extremely concerned to see it have problems, so I again thank you very much.
