ever since i updated to windows 10 and updated Adobe Photoshop Version: 20.0.4, having mayor issues. photoshop freezes very often, and the most annoying thing is when using free transform on anything , particularly with type, the images gets very distorted. almost pixelated like. I often have to work with extremely large files for this not to happen.

When you're in transform mode, what is Interpolation set to in the options bar? Make sure it is set to "Bicubic".

If that's not the problem, please post a screenshot of the issue you are seeing.

Check graphics card.  I had a similar problem when updating to 20.0.4.  My existing card could handle Windows 10 but could not run it properly after PhotoShop update.  Updated card and was able to move on to some of the other problems with 20.0.4.
