Photoshop CC 2014 makes my Windows 7 crash when ever i launch it :S never had any trouble with older versions, running Windows 7 64 bit 12GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB HD, ATI Radeon 6750, it makes my hardware hang and force restart after that. Any idea on how that's possible?

That is not possible for application software to do.
But it is possible for OS bugs, low level driver bugs, or hardware defects to do.

Why are you running Win7 on an iMac?
And have you updated the video card drivers from ATI's website?

Im running Bootcamp Windows 7 sometimes, but never had any problems, i did just install more ram, ( new ) 1333 Mhz for my iMac Late 2011 but at first i did not had any problems, even with the new ram, yes running the latest on ATI drivers, it just does the ''hang thing with photoshop as it trying to start up.
Weird though..

Sounds like the video card driver is causing the system hang - which means that the bootcamp drivers or ATI drivers are not working correctly, or that your hardware has problems.
