When I try to open Photoshop CS, I get an error message that " gear32pd.dll" is not found, and the program will not start.  After closing the error dialog box, Photoshop will start and work normally.
I downloaded a copy of gear32pd.dll, but I don't know where to place it.  Can anyone help?

    Try placing it in your C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM folder or C:\WINNT\system32 folder

    Hi honeybadger,
    Yes, sajuks is completely right, if you continue to get this error I would also put it in the main Photoshop CS folder.

    Thank you all.  Putting the "gear32pd.dll into Photoshop>plugin folder did the trick.
