I have been running Adobe Photoshop CS2 for about 4 months now with no problems. Went to open it today and recieved this error message:

Adobe Photoshop:
Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error. Sorry, this error is unrecoverable.
(QUIT)

I tried reinstalling with the same response. All other Adobe programs I have are still working including Bridge, Imageready, and Reader. Anyone have a clue?

Well I am no expert, but I learned a long time ago, "Googling" can get you a decent answer, so I tried that, and here's what I came up with:

It's a possible solution, so I would try it :whistling:.

Error messages just seem to like me, although this is probably the root of the cause. New error message when trying to run services.msc like that website said.

Windows Management Console:

MMC cannot open the file C:\Windows\system32\services.msc

This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may be also because you do not have sufficient rights to veiw the file.


How could my services.msc get deleted or corrupted?

Thanks, I had to take a larger action because this seemed to be windows form of an auto immune disease. It started to delete its own files. I know it sounds like a virus but I had brand new definitions and had scanned several times. Anyways I backed my stuff up real fast and reformatted. Everything is working again but thanks for the ideas!

It could still very well be a virus, there really isn't an anti-virus scanner that can detect all viruses.

Here are some free online virus scanners I recommend:

BitDefender
F-SECURE
Housecall Trend Micro

I am no expert in Malware, but these free online scanner's have always helped myself :whistling:.
