One of my problems of today is next. Several days ago something happened with my .psd file. I've no idea what exactly, but it can't be opened by any method.

If the thumbnail of your file is a sheet of paper, then it is corrupted! If not you can open it in Photoshop and "save it as" another file like jpeg or tiff or bmp ... .

Ultimate solution which might more effective than all listed is Recovery Toolbox for Photoshop

It is helpful tip -

This one artilce from Adobe, is also can assist you:

·  Open "My Computer." In Windows XP, the icon is on the desktop. In Windows Vista or Windows 7, you must access this via the "Computer" option in the Start menu.

·  Double-click the "C" drive, followed by the "Windows" folder inside. Locate the temporary Photoshop folder, which will look similar to this: "Photoshop Temp6382948398." Double-click the folder when you find it.

·  Locate the file inside the temporary folder that matches the name of the corrupted file. Double-click it to open it in Photoshop.

·  Click "Save As" in the "File" portion of the main menu bar. Save it in a different location and under a different name.

File-corruption is not limited to Adobe-application-generated files. 
If you have no back up-syszem in place yet you may want to look into the issue. 

And a title like »I don't like adobe products « is not exactly meaningful or useful ...
