Go to your preferences folder and delete the Photoshop preferences files.
Or use the keyboard shortcut (control-alt-shift / command-option-shift).

Photoshop CS3 stopped working. After following these steps Photoshop started working again.
1. Deleted .psp files in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Adobe Photoshop CS3 Settings.
2. Deleted the file in C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Save For Web AI\12.0.
3. In this folder add an ~ in front of the Twain_32.8BA file: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Plug-Ins\Import-Export\~Twain_32.8BA
4. Restart Photoshop

Good Luck
