Type Tool Freezing PC - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

Whenever I click on the type tool, Photoshop 7.01 freezes. Need to use task manager or even the PC's reset button to get out of the freeze. I have tried it on any type of image, same result every time. It is a relatively new install on a newly built PC. Installed about week ago. Everything else seems to be fine except the Type Tool. P4 3.0 GHz, 2 gig of DDR400 memory, Win XP SP1. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

    Looks like a plug-in conflict. I reinstalled Photoshop and before any plug-ns were installed, and I have many, the type tool worked. It even worked after I installed several plug-ins. I then assumed it was a bad install because I had a bad memory dimm at the time of time of PS install, I did not check again and spent the next 5 hours reinstalling all the plug-ins. Then when completed, I tried it, and the type tool froze Photoshop again. So now I will install one by one until I find the culprit, I hope.

    I wouldn't install ANY plugins for a couple of days and see if it locks up. Systems under XP (and win 2k) that totally lock (as opposed to an application locking up forcing crtl-alt-delete to terminate the app) are caused by either 1) bad hardware, 2) extremely buggy low level (sound, video, etc) device driver (and in most cases a device driver will only produce a blue screen), 3) bad bios.

    anything else (application error) is caught by the os because of the way the system is designed (process isolation). It's designed so that a crashing application (photoshop, plug-ins, etc) CAN NOT bring down the entire system. Only the failing process should lock.

    Put ALL 3rd-party plugins in an auxiliary plugins folder, then point to it in your preferences.
