MY photoshop was working fine up until a week ago. Then get gave me this error message. "Unable to continue because of hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable". The error pops up when photoshop is loading "building color convertion tables" or something to that effect. It is not the fonts becuase I have not installed any new fonts, have defraged my hardrive. The only thing that i did do is install the new directx june 2006, and the new NVIDIA drivers. I uninstalled my Nvidia drivers but problem still persists, please I am desparate for help, formating my hard drive is not an option. I have reset the prefs both via ctrl, atl and shift, and searching for the psp file and deleting it manually, same problem pops up. I installed Photoshop cs and I recieve the same error message. I am desperate for any solutions.

Have you tried to completely uninstall all photoshop / adobe products, and reinstalling it? Also make sure no other unneeded processes are running in the background that could interfere with this application.

Have you tried my previous suggestion?
If it failed, I have a few more ideas.

Try this:

 Enable the Event log service.

1. Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel.

2. Double-click Administrative Tools, then Services.

3. Right-click Event Log and select Start.

Sounds like it may be a font problem.
Another fellow PS CS2 user seemed to have the same problem, caused by a few corrupt fonts.

If that fails, try this one:

Its a checklist of things to do to go about fixing the problem.
