Photoshop CS2 Wont load. - Unable to continue because of hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable.

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.

Is there nobody out there who can help me with this problem?
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.

It seems that nobody has the solution to this problem, so im stuck with completely installing my os again. Oh happy times.

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

Try this:

1. Choose Start > Settings > Control Panel.

2. Double-click Administrative Tools, then Services.

3. Right-click Event Log and select Start.

Also, try this:

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.
