I have a Windows Vista machine with Adobe CS3 Suite installed.  It has worked perfectly for a long time.  Now when I try to open Photoshop I get an error that it has stopped working (never gets past the loading screen).  It stops on "Loading TWAIN menu items...".  Do I have any options here to try and resolve this issue?

If you do resort to reinstalling the software, make sure you delete its Program Files directory manually! Sometimes, preferences and other files (like the TWAIN file that I believe is causing your issue) are saved and not overwritten on reinstall.
