Photoshop: Glitches in Photoshop CS4

Hello, I am using CS4 version 11.0.2. I have been increasing an increasing amount of glitches with the program. Objects on layers move to different parts of the screen when I click on them. I can't edit text once I make it. Also the marquee tool makes boxes of different sizes and shapes before I get a chance to drag a corner. Is there a fix for these problems? Thank you,
Tim

Hi Tim,

Sounds like it was working before but now there are more problems. What's changed? Have you updated to OS? Installed new software, plug-ins, utilities or drivers?

Hello Jeffrey,
I haven't made any changes in the operating system. The problems just started gradually in the past couple weeks. It was just occasional, but now the problems are common, with the text editing problem arriving a couple days ago. I did the auto update in my help menu but it says there are no updates available. I went through the page you linked to but it only covered CS5 and CS6. Is there anything else I can do to remedy this problem?
Thank you,
Tim

The solutions on the page I sent should apply to CS4 as well. Resetting your prefs would be a good place to start.

Also, updating/troubleshooting your video driver would be likely culprits. (also covered in the link above)
