PS 2015.5 freezes when opening a file about every 5th or 6th file.  Requires force quitting and resetting preferences to work again.  Using Windows 10.  Began happening after last update. Very time consuming to fix.  Seems particularly likely to happen when a brush tool is selected.

Are you using any third party plugins?  Have you tried disabling them?

Double check that the updated Camera Raw is working correctly (may be misinstalled).

There was no difference in the plug-in environment between PS 15.4 and 15.5, and only after 15.5 installed did the freezing start.  Also, it does not happen for the first 5 or 6 images processed.  So far it has only happened when a brush-based tool has been selected  when an image loads.

What do you mean by 15.4 and 15.5?

The current version of Photoshop is CC 2015.1.2, aka 16.1.2.
