I am having an issue with getting the message ‘Adobe Bridge has stopped working’ at which point I am dead in the water for using Photoshop! I am using Windows 8.1. I installed the same PS program that was running just fine on windows 7 on a different computer and have nothing but problems with windows 8. I have tried the ‘reset settings’ as suggested in another forum which does nothing. I have looked at the task manager, and Bridge is not running, as also suggested in another forum. I reinstalled the PS program and downloaded all the updates and all was fine for 1 day. Now the problem is back. This is intolerable! Does anyone have any idea if it is a windows 8 problem, and/or if there is a different fix for windows 8? My PS version is13.0 x64. The OS is Windows 8.1 Pro.

We would need to see the detailed crash report (see the system event viewer) to know what the problem might be.
