    Fades to Program not Responding

    I hope this is the correct group to ask this.

    I have been running Vista HP 32 Bit for nearly a year without
    problems. Recently PSP 8 (photo editing software) will load but as
    soon as I try to use it, the screen fades out and I get a 'Program not
    Responding' window.

    I tried uninstalling/reinstalling, same thing and yet previously all
    had been well. As a matter of interest I tried a free trial run of
    another photo editing software and exactly the same thing happens.

    I know there is an MS program within Vista that it really prefers me
    to use but I am picky about my photos and have them all organised how
    I like them and I don't want to be pushed into another method,
    particularly not when I have software of my own that I wish to use.

    What is the answer here? How can I get back to what I consider
    normal ?

    I appreciate any suggestions.

    You might try PSP support - but 8 is quite old. I normally use
    Photoshop CS3 here, but still occasionally use PSP7 without problem.

    PSP 8 was the last made by Jasc. I tried downloading a free trial of
    the latest Corel edition PSP EX2 but the same fade out happens. That's
    mostly why I feel it is a Vista issue, but haven't a clue what
