Can you locate the PSErrorLog.txt file in your Photoshop preferences folder?
That should contain details on each program error, and might help us find the cause.

Hi Chris,

I would attach a copy of the file for your perusal if I could see how to do it. As extra info, the Quick Select opens showing a 'subtract' sign on the cursor not a 'plus'. If I go to use it, it will make a selection initially even though it shows a minus but then, without touching the 'alt' key, from then on will revert to subtracting the selection. Total nonsense.

Best regards,

Tim
