The Photoshop scratch disk is your hard drive. Photoshop uses your
hard drive as temporary "swap" space, or virtual memory, when your
system does not have enough RAM to perform an operation. If you only
have one hard drive or partition in
your computer, then the scratch disk will be the drive where your
operating system is installed (the C drive on a Windows system).
You can change the scratch disk location and add multiple
scratch disks from Photoshop Preferences. Many power users like to
create a dedicated hard drive partition for the Photoshop scratch disk.
Although Photoshop will function with a single scratch disk on the
system partition, you can improve performance by setting the scratch
disk to be the fastest drive in your system. Other useful guidelines
for setting scratch disks are to avoid using the same drive where your
operating system is installed, avoid using a drive where the files you
edit are stored, and don't use network or removable drives for a
If Photoshop is shut down improperly or crashes in the middle
of an editing session, this can leave fairly large temporary files
behind on your scratch disk. Photoshop's temp files are typically named
~PST####.tmp on Windows and Temp#### on Macintosh, where #### is a
series of numbers. These are safe to delete.
If you're getting an error message that the scratch disk is
full, it means you need to clear some space on whatever drive is
defined as the scratch disk in Photoshop Preferences, or add additional
drives for Photoshop to use as scratch space.

Check to see if your system has enough memory and hard drive space. Photoshop should tell you how much memory and space you need. If this is a problem, you'll need to free up space. Photoshop may need to be uninstalled and reinstalled. The scratch disks are areas of memory that hold your edits. If you don't have enough memory, you'll need to install more.
After entering the serial code of your adobe photo shop, another set of numbers will automatically be displayed at the lower installation box. copy and past it at the autorization code box. Have a nice day and hoping this would solve your problem my friend.
There are multiple was to accomplish photo editing.
Old school, by using editing software on your system. This ranges from very technically complicated, but very powerful, [and very expensive] editing software like Photoshop CS4, to more more moderately prices [and more basic user friendly] software packages, to free software like Picasa from Google.
All have benefits and drawbacks. I am sorry but to give even a primer on the use of a package like Photoshop would take pages. There is much information online. Many photo quality printers come with software utilities to edit photos. For instance HP has its "Photosmart Essentials" that comes with it Photosmart printers.
The latest way to do minor editing of photos is online, in your browser, with services like "Picnik" [ http://www.picnik.com/ ]. It lets you upload, manipulate photos for free [though there is a paid "premium" service as well].
The best way is to experiment. If you keep a copy of your original files safe in a separate place from the copy you are working on you can use any of these solutions to make changes and learn by trial and error [the way most of us did it] and in a little while you will be making photos that will delight you, your family and friends.
I use Adobe page maker 7.0, I collected some documents from website. All that documents are Arial Unicode MS. I cannot edit the scripts in Page make, I copy the document and paste in the page maker, but all letter convert to other font, so please tell me how can edit the documents in same fonts in page maker.
Was it the preferences file that you deleted? The description you gave to your problem sounds like your running a windows machine instead of Mac so i'll give you keys for PC. While program is launching hold down the following keys "Control+Shift+Alt" then when there is a screen that asks to delete the prefs files select "yes".
this is not a hardware error actually photoshop writes temporary files, for which it uses hard drive, its alway a better to have scratch disk other then the drive where its installed, you can change this, by going to edit, preferences, then check plug ins-scratch disk, check your first scratch disk other than c, say the drive which has the maximum space, then select any drive
how do you like the solution please rate it i will appreciate your comments
