The last few days when using Photoshop Cs5 it has been freezing up and generally reacting sluggishly.
I checked the task manager and found two cs5 exe running at the same time and the one does not go away after closing the program. I am sure that this is the problem but have no idea how to fix it, has anybody heard of this or run across this problem and know what to do?
Thanx in advance

As far as I know...the only program that should reflect multiple instances of same process in Task Manager...is IE because it allows for multiple connections at the same time via windows/tabs...and it's a basic component of Windows processes.

I don't know anything about PS CS5...but the appropriate forum for Adobe should be able to resolve any questions about such.


FWIW: There is always one instance IE running, whether it is being used or not.

I'll move this to the Graphics forum here...someone there may be able to give you a better answer.
