Since the recent update of Windows 10 just the last week), when I open Photoshop CC 2015, Windows 10 stop and try to take the information for know why the problem and I see the message : Kernel_Security_Check_Failure. I don't understand why? Before the recent update of Windows 10, I have not the problem with Photoshop CC 2015

That a BSOD, which means you have an OS bug, a low level driver bug (like video card drivers), or defective hardware in your system.
A BSOD cannot be caused by an application.

You might want to read:

And you should definitely update your video card drivers from the GPU maker to pick up their latest bug fixes (updating from Microsoft will not help).

In this case, NVidia released a driver that caused the SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE with a BSOD, shutdown, or reboot.
NVidia has updated drivers in testing that fix this, or you can downgrade to an older driver version without the bug.
