PHOTOSHOP CC 2015 - My Brush strokes are extremely lagging at larger sizes.

And when I turn over the pen to erase it does the same thing.
I have checked all of the system requirements and my specs exceeded all but ,maybe one and that one meets the criteria.
I have Manga Studio 5 installed on my computer and have tried doing the same thing and even with Photoshop open, it doesn't lag.
I uninstalled Photoshop and reinstalled and at 42% it failed and I had to retry.
After that, it succeeded but it failed to download the latest patch so I had to retry again.
I have no problem with menus in the program just drawing. I have increased the buffer to no avail and even changed the drawing mode to basic and still nothing.

Anybody have a similar problem with a fix?

What version of Photoshop are you using? Have you installed all the updates?
What OS version are you using?

And the most common causes of lag like that are video card drivers, but sometimes we see plugins cause delays, third party extension panels, and even some utility programs (like antivirus and firewalls).

Yes, I have the latest Photoshop CC 2015. I just downloaded it again.
I'm using the latest Windows 7.
Well my video card is up to specs. Does it matter the company?
I've been using only the standard brushes.

First, make sure you have the 2015.0.1 update installed.

Update the video card driver from the GPU maker's website.

If you have third party plugins or extension panels installed, try disabling them.

Beyond that, you'd need to look for utilities or other application on your system that might cause Photoshop to slow down.

Thank you for your help so far Chris Cox,
I said on my original post that I just reinstalled it but I checked and thats the version I have.
My video card driver is updated and I don't have anything third party.
As to about programs in the background, the only program that is like that is sticky notes that comes with windows and I highly doubt that's slowing it down.

And the program itself isn't slow. I can go into into menus and the such in Photoshop just fine, its when I start putting paint on the canvas. Have you ever encountered a problem like this before? Where a specific thing in the program is slow and laggy?

Yes, we've seen video card drivers cause slowdowns like that.

how large are your images? how large is your brush? how severe is the lag? which video card?

the more info you provide, the more likely it is that someone can track down the problem.
