Here are but a few. Some are newer, sold older, some have ongoing discussions....
Well, let's see...the first one was Windows, you aren't running Windows are ya? The second thread was about crashing trying to save a Flash file...you aren't trying to save a Flash file are ya? The 3rd was crashing running a filter, the 4th one from July 2010 and was prolly resolved by the 12.0.1 update, the 5th one was fixed by turning off Open CL, oh and he was Windows too. #6 was Windows and was also OPen CL and was fixed with a driver update. The 7th was Photoshop CS2, not CS5. #8 was a bad install of CS3 that was fixed by an uninstall/reinstall-from Oct 2010.
Ya get the drift?
There is no indication that two weeks ago many, many users started crashing...your assumption is wrong and as a result, your own troubleshooting is being impacted. While you say you did an uninstall/reinstall, you don't indicate you've trashed the PS prefs, that's troubleshooting 101. You also don't say whether you've tried turning Open CL on/off or changing the settings. Heck, you haven't even posted what CPU and what OS you're running. Do you really want help?
Again if you want your crash report read, post to the Adobe Photoshop forum...there's Photoshop QE and engineering staff that can read it an help you. In the mean time you really should learn that Photoshop is a canary in a coal mine that stresses your machine to the limit. If something is wrong with the hardware or software, Photoshop can start crashing...sorry you are having issues, but that's not really a good reason to yell fire, ya know? BTW, editing your OP to change the context (removing the two weeks) is kinda bad form. It's one thing to edit for spelling and typos but it's another to try to hide what you originally wrote.
