Abortion Laws. Every time.Whenever I open photoshop/file/import/images from device the default filename Adobe presents me with is that of the very first file I ever created on photoshop CS6: Abortion Laws. I've tried resetting everything. I've tried searching for the string in system files. I've installed the updates. I've tried contacting customer service, which was worse than useless because it offered some hope but repeatedly failed to provide any solution.Can't change it.Abortion Laws every time.

You crashed or otherwise failed to close Photoshop cleanly while that image was open. Photoshop auto-saved the image, and is recovering it when you launch Photoshop again. But for some reason (probably a permissions error on your disk), Photoshop cannot delete the file, so it keeps getting reopened every time you launch Photoshop.

What OS version are you using? (so we know which instructions to offer)

I've had the same problem as well. I found a folder titled PSAutoRecover with the images (I had 3 open), deleted them and the problem stopped. I found the folder through searching a portion of the image name that appears when one of the images opens during launch.
