I have Adobe Photoshop Starter Edition for several years.

Customer Question
No problem until today....
I have Adobe Photoshop Starter Edition for several years. No problem until today. Don't know what I did, but when going to a photograph and clicking on to fix (crop, etc) a message comes on saying "Searching for missing file. To locate file yourself click Browse. I do that and an unknown small red icon appears below center on the photo. The P number does not correspond to the photo shown but refers to another photo somewhere else. I'm afraid to try to delete anything. How do I get rid of this feature and go back to the orginal program?

Hello and thank you for choosing justanswer.com

First thing to try is a system restore, this will undo any system/software changes that may have occured.

You stated that this problem started today, I would suggest going back to yesterday or the day before for the restore then.

Start > Program Files > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Click restore computer to an earlier time and select a point on the calendar to restore to. It will reboot and then see if it works, if not the next step may be to take the photoshop disc and do a repair installation.

Let me know how this works for you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
