Often when I open a file or folder to work on a picture on my iMac it acts as if its waiting for the file to load , but the wheel keeps spinningxand freezes and to get it working I have to restart the mac. I have sent countless reports any suggestions?

What have you done for trouble-shooting so far?

Anyway, if the whole OS freezes/crashes the problem would lie outside of Photoshop.

If you are using an external drive, or a network volume - that could indicate that you've lost the connection to that volume and are waiting for the OS to time out the access attempts.
