I have been using Photoshop CS2 (on XP Windows ) for several years. I want to update to CS5.

However, all of a sudden CS2 is taking over 3 minutes to load even a small 700Kb jpg file. What must I do to solve this problem, before I install CS5?

And did you change the default printer driver? Yes, some printer drivers can respond so slowly that they make documents open slow because older versions of Photoshop ask for information about the default printer when creating each document.
