Selecting colors locks Photoshop

Hey there,

so I have been working with Photoshop CS6 for nearly 2 years and never experienced any issues. However today as soon as I launched it and tried to pick a color it auto selected the pipette and disabled everything else. And by everything I mean everything. I couldn ́t even close the program like I usually do. I needed to close it over the windows task manager.

I also tried to reinstall it. Still nothing.
If you know how to fix it please be so kind and tell me.

Thanks in advance,

Hey Gregor,

Which version of Windows are you running there?  Have you installed any other applications recently?  Have you installed any new fonts recently?  Have you tried trashing your preferences?

Let me know,
