Hi there Jamal,

Did it specifically mention the "move tool" in the error message?   Error messages are not usually that specific.   CS6 is a robust system, old, not supported now, but I have that program and I have never had that message, especially about the move tool.  Even if I did, I would ignore it then close the image, close the program, and reopen the program and get a fresh start.  Usually error messages are tossed up to the screen mainly because there are too many commands for the computer to decipher, and not enough memory to decipher them all at once.   If shutting and reopening the program doesn't work, reboot the computer then try again. 

You don't mention which Operating System you have, so I cannot help you further until I get lots more info.  Windows 10 can do this as it distributes memory in tasking, differently than past Operating Systems.  Then again, there is more memory required for Windows 10.  Those who have this system usually have lots of memory and they don't experience problems often.   For mine I have 12 Gigs, and 8 Gigs are recommended, and 4 Gigs are minimum and that may not work well.   I do know, if you click too much on any program, an error message will be tossed to the screen, mostly due to memory, as Windows begins to redistribute data packets to other sections of the drive, buffers and DRAM which is a mixed bag of memory levels.   Give it more patience.   

I was a test engineer many years ago and I banged on a lot on Microsoft programs.  Not much happened but they can have a memory problem if you bang on them too much in a relatively short time span.  Too many commands in memory can cause a traffic bottleneck of data being brought through the system, too much, all at once   I'll bet it will start working soon.  Never heard of this problem on any Adobe products.  The move tool usually works more than other tools.   A boot might fix it.  I wouldn't uninstall and reinstall just yet, okay.   

Steve Lehman, mcse

Mr. Steve Lehman, tahnk you somuch about your response.

Before the problem comes, 
actually i make the file with 3000 x 3000 pxl.. then after render, i make a low pixel in 1600x1600 pxl unless the file was so big.

maybe the problem is happening because that.
but the RAM memory of my PC is 16GB

but whaterver that was happening :')
maybe i need to find a IT man around my house :)

So Big Thanks for response and give some tips :)
Thank you!

btw, im so sorry for a bad grammar, hope you understand :)

Jamal,   
Why do you have an old CS6 and 16 Gigs of memory?  Buy a new Photoshop.   And most people won't invest into 16 Gigs yet if they don't need it.

What's the brand of the computer?   3D animation can take 8 to 12 Gigs. They didn't recommend 16 Gigs with Win-7.
