The biggest issue I have is that each time I select a different brush I have to wait about 1 minute before it will work. Today I was also having issues in the fx panel that it too was freezing up to the point I had to force quit. This is getting really tiring and all the issues similar to mine that I have found online with advise are not solving this problem. This is a program I heavily use every day and I am about the rip my hair out! PLEASE HELP!!!! I have even tired updating it. The version is 14.2.1 x64

Yes, something is wrong on your system.
First, try disabling third party plugins.
Second, try updating your video card driver from the GPU maker's website (and rebooting to load it).
Third, if those don't work try resetting Photoshop's preferences.
