New laptop with Windows 10 now installed. Everything else is working in Photoshop except Photomerge which freezes my PC when it gets as far as' blend layers based on content'. Any suggestions as to what causes this problem?

Does this happen with all sets of images you try to merge? or a specific set?

Is Photoshop up-to-date? http://adobe.ly/PS-Up-To-Date

Was Windows 10 the original OS on the machine, or did you update the OS from Win 7/8 to Win 10?

All images. The laptop came with Windows 8 and I updated it to 10 before installing Photoshop CC. I have installed a trial of Elements 14 and Photomerge works with that OK. However I don't want to buy Elements just to do an occasional pano when I'm paying for CC.

Try restoring your preferences: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201... If you do restore your prefs, please save a copy of your existing prefs in case they turn out to be the culprit. Having the bad prefs can sometimes help us track down the issue.
