I have a new (ish) Dell laptop which came with Windows 7 64-bit. Loaded on the programs I needed, including an Adobe CS3 (I believe it's CS3) Suite which includes Photoshop, Indesign, etc.
It has worked perfectly for the last month or two. When I went to access Indesign last Friday, nothing happened. By nothing, I mean that I clicked on the icon on the desktop, the mouse cursor changed to the circle for a moment, and then the mouse cursor reverted to the arrow and no process showed in task manager under processes or applications when investigated.
To my knowledge, no hardware/ software updates have occurred recently.
I have tried accessing each program via its shortcut and through the start menu, but the same result occurs.
I have also tried going into properties>compatibility and running the program in Win XP (SP3) mode, even disabling visual themes, but no change.
