I have Photoshop CS5. I have 2 problems 1. when I work in it for several hours all the tools freeze up, can't use any of them. I have to force quit the program. 2. When I force quit the program I have to re-install the brushes because it defaults to factory brush settings. Are there fixes for those?

What platform? Have you installed all the updates? Have you tried disabling all third party plugins?

The brushes reset because something corrupted Photoshop's preferences file. But the preferences only get written when exiting Photoshop. So unless you force quit while Photoshop was writing preferences on exit -- something is up with your disk or machine.
