What version of Photoshop are you using?
What OS version are you using?
What do you mean won't load a picture? Does the document window show up at all? Does it end up on a second display that you're not looking at?

OK, the last time we heard something like that it was caused by another application/utility that had patched some OS APIs and was interfering with other applications.

Have you tried closing other applications?
Have you tried disabling any utility programs you are using?

It could also be caused, in theory, by a bug in a third party plugin. Have you tried disabling third party plugin (hold down shift as you launch Photoshop)?
