Photoshop CS6 Beta: Freeze/Crash When Using Liquify Filter

Hi, I have been trying to use the "Liquify" filter on a layer within a Photoshop creation of mine. Before selecting "Liquify" from the Filters menu, I have been hiding all the other layers. After using Liquify, I click on OK and Photoshop takes me back to the image and freezes. It then crashes and I have to restart it.

Any suggestions on what I can do? Or on what I may be doing that is wrong? I am running Photoshop CS6 Beta on a PC running Windows 7 64-bit OS.

Thank you in advance for any help you are able to offer! :-)

Have you been able to reproduce this behavior with the final release?

How much RAM do you have? What video card? Updated drivers?

This is most like a video card driver issue.

Determine what video card you have and go directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD) and download the latest driver. GPU and OpenGL support | Photoshop CS4, CS5:

Selecting the liquify filter in CS6 Extended also instantly crashes CS6 on my system.
I have the latest video drivers, openGL etc on a Qaud core PC with 8 Gbytes of ram.,
Liquify has worked perfectly in the earlier version CS6 - it became an issue when I uploaded the latest update through Adobe Creative Cloud.

Most likely that means a problem with your video card driver.

Which OS version are you using?
Which GPU?
DId you update the GPU driver from the GPU maker's website or Microsoft (mistake)?
