Issue#1402: Photoshop: Photoshop CC, and Windows 10, and continual BSOD

  • Hi everyone,


         Lately I've been struggling to open Photoshop, but every time on "loading preferences..." in the launcher it crashes and cuts to the bluescreen with KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE.



              Dell Inspiron 7000 Series Model 7559

                   Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor

                   SK  hynix SC300 M.2 2280 128GB SSD

                   ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB 1TB HDD

                   Intel(R) HD Graphics 530

                   NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M


         I've read up on the different methods of temporary fixes. Here are the one's I've done:


              -tried opening Photoshop CC with administrative rights

              -tried changing the graphics card default to the integrated GTX 960

              -tried accessing Photoshop CC from a desktop shortcut

              -tried checking for damaged memory or RAM

              -tried checking updates for drivers

              -tried rolling back drivers

              -tried reinstalling


         I've tried varying combinations, now I do all of them every time. Each time, I receive varying results: sometimes the launcher will make it halfway through, sometimes the program opens for a couple of seconds. Each time, a bluescreen with the same error code. Nothing but KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE


         The most recent series of BSODs occurred after the recent Photoshop CC update, just a few days from when I had fixed it using the desktop shortcut method. At this point, I may just resort to tech support, but here's a last ditch effort to figure out what's going on.

  • Issue#1051760: After Effects - Photoshop CC 2015.5/Windows 10 Scaling Issue

    I recently installed Photoshop CC 2015.5 on my Windows 10 laptop. Upon creating a new canvas, I discovered that the canvas I made (5x8.25 inch) appeared way smaller than it should (more like 1x2 inches at 100%!). I can only see the canvas as the size I need it to be when I zoom in 200%. Everything else in the program is the right size; the menus, buttons, windows and everything. The DPI is 72. My screen resolution is 3840x2160.  Any advice would be appreciated.

  • Issue#1400: Photoshop: Photoshop only loads without dvamarshal.dll in Windows 10

    I was hoping that the Photoshop update today fixes this issue but unfortunately not. My Photoshop CC 2015 still will not load without me deleting/renaming dvamarshal.dll to dvamarshall-old.dll. This became my temporary solution as recommended by an Adobe Rep via online chat/remote assistance after over an hour of troubleshooting; he was very helpful!! We tried everything: upgrading NVIDIA graphics cards driver, uninstalling/installing PS, disabling firewall/antivirus, etc. The main symptom with the dvamarshall.dll in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 is that it load the splash screen, hangs for about 5-10 seconds, and then the Windows message prompts to quit program. I'm aware that similar issues were posted in this forum.  Also even with the dvamarshall.dll renamed, my Photoshop is still not running at 100%, since the Quick Export & Export As are not working, too. But at least I can still open my Photoshop and use the Legacy Export to Web feature. I'm r

    On both my desktop and laptop, when I go to print in Photoshop CC, I get the message that an error has happened and it shuts down photoshop.

  • Issue#12827: Photoshop - Windows displaying incorrectly and layering in an illogical way

    Hello, I am having a massive problem on CS2 with windows appearing incorrectly on windows 10. This didn't used to be a problem.  For example, if I click on a web browser while photoshop is open, elements of the software stay on screen. The same applies when I open "Save for web" or other stuff. Because of this, when I get up confirmation pop ups, for example, after transforming, they appear BEHIND the canvas, and it locks up the whole application because I can't access them!!! This is REALLY annoying and buggy, please help, why are all the windows in this application suddenly layering in an illogical way? It's just about un-usable. Another annoying thing that happens is if you click on a canvas, the tool bars vanish! It's also really annoying, I don't want the tool bars to ever vanish, but I can't find an option that fixes this... I have to spam "tab" about 3 times all the time to get them back.

  • Issue#22020: Photoshop Elements - What edition of Photoshop (Elements?) can I buy for Windows Vista?

    Hi everyone. Sorry for the dry nature of this post, but I've just spent about an hour or two on the Adobe website with few answers found. I'll cut to the chase: I was using Photoshop Elements 12 on my Vista computer, and want to purchase it (or try another version of Photoshop that still runs on Vista). I refuse to buy another computer just to run a program with which I was perfectly content on my own computer. The only option I currently see on the website is Creative Cloud: I am willing to consider signing up for it if I can use Photoshop on my Windows Vista computer. I will not entertain any discussion as to upgrading my operating system: Photoshop Elements 12 suited me perfectly fine for my needs. If Creative Cloud's edition of Photoshop cannot work with Vista, where can I purchase/download/access/use a completely legitimate and legal Vista-capable edition, and how much will it cost me? Thanks!

  • Issue#33557: Problems with Lightroom CC (and Photoshop CC) since last Windows 10 Update

    Problem starting Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC since the last Windows update (yesterday). They both ask to be shutdown before I can even get started. No error code given in Lightroom, just that it needs to be closed. Photoshop gives me an error of "problem with generator"...  I've reinstalled Lightroom with no luck. Haven't tried Photoshop yet but assume it will not fix it.  Have never had issues with either until this last update of Windows... Anyone have any suggestions and/or experiencing similar problems?  Thanks,Steven

  • Issue#48609: After Effects - Photoshop CC 2015 causes lag/freeze by using a Nvidia Quadro K620M (Windows 10)

    My Hardware:Lenovo W550s Laptop with 2 GPUs: Intel HD 5500 and Nvidia Quadro K620M. Operation system is Windows 10 64Bit. Photoshop version:Adobe Photoshop Version: 2015.1.2 20160113.r.355 2016/01/13:23:59:59 CL 1059143  x64 The problem:If the Nvidia Quadro is set as the Graphic Processor for Photoshop every ~10 seconds the system lags/freezes for less a second. Means if I move a windows around it stops moving for less a second. This happens only when Photoshop is running (even in the background). If Photoshop doesn't run but other applications using the Nvidia Quadro (e.g. Illustrator) are running I have no lags at all. What I did to resolve that issue so far:I tried different Nvidia driver (WHQL) versions (354.56 & 361.75). Also the drivers from Lenovo for that specific laptop (354.45). Adobe doesn't offer "Partner Certified Drivers" for that Quadro. I had to use the "ODE" (default) drivers.I tried out the 3 different "drawing modes" (Advances, Normal & Ba
