My CS4 Photoshop is a pain in the rear end, when I am working on an image and use the polygonal lasso I get part way and it appears to refresh or something as the tool takes the quicest route to complete its task. this happens also when I stop to look at where then image I am using it on. this is so frustrating, I ont double hit when placeing the cursor over the area loike an adobe tech suggested.

If you're on a Mac, please try the solution in this document:

Installing the plug-in from the document above should solve:

• menus, panels, or dialog boxes turn white and become unresponsive
• keyboard shortcuts stop working
• lasso tool selections close prematurely
• Photoshop becomes unresponsive
