I Have have a problem with PS6, since downloading 10.8 Mountain Lion when using my clone tool for any length of time all of my tools freeze and save copy paste functions are not usable,it not only affects ps it also freeze's type in safari,word ,excel facebook basically the entire system. I have to restart the system to get up and running again. I had mountain lion removed and reinstalled Lion (which I did not have this problem with) and the problem still exists. I have since installed Maverick, but it did not cure the problem. Any Ideas as I have been fighting with this going on 2 yrs.

Ok, that sounds like an OS issue, but it could also be caused by a bad application or utility (antivirus, clipboard helper, dictation feature, etc.).

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound exactly like any of the problems I've seen reported elsewhere. There are some MacOS issues that cause apps to stop responding to events for a while - but those usually go away after switching between apps, and don't require a reboot. And I haven't heard of many MacOS issues that would affect multiple applications like that.

And I think you mean Photoshop CS6 (Photoshop 6 won't run on modern Macintoshes).
