Stuck on hand Tool

I just got Photoshop recently and it's worked fine for the first couple of days, but today when I started it up i wasn't able to edit any of my photos. No matter what tool I selected, whenever I scroll over my picture it shows up as the hand tool. I don't know what the problem is, but I would appreciate any help.

Press 'Spacebar' if that doesn't work go to Edit>Preferences>General and reset settings. That'll work.

Tool palette freezes

There are a couple of possibilities. 1. Confirm the image is in RGB color mode, sometimes CMYK or Index color will lock tools (Image->Mode->RGB) 2. Sometimes part of the image is selected, even though you may not see it. Try using ctrl+d to make sure you have de-selected all of the canvas. Good Luck!

My clone tool for photoshop elements is not working. Everything else is and has been. I only used it once about a month ago and then it said there was a program error. I didn't need it again until now and...

I have not experienced this, but there's talk about some plug-ins effecting the clone tool's function.
A couple of suggestions to try:
- Remove you third party plug-ins one by one until you find the one that affects how the tool works. Bare in mind that some removals may require a restart to be effective.
- Delete your Photoshops preferences, hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift when launching Photoshop until a pop-up window asks you are you sure you want to delete the preferences. NOTE that this will delete all your p'shop settings and customisations, it'll be like you've just installed it again. Failing that, you can go to C:Docs&Settings\<user>\Applic Data\Adobe\Photoshop\6\Adobe PShop Settings\ and delete the file that says something like "Photoshop 6 Prefs.psp"

Adobe photoshop 7.0 unexpected and unrecoverable error

I had a similar experience a while back. Photoshop worked fine for a couple years and then suddenly the same error appeared. Apparently I had purchased a "trial" software cd. Have you checked on with your registration number to see if it's a good, clean, unregistered, etc copy?

Problem with the "type engine"

Here are a couple of things to try. First, try uninstalling and re-installing the application / repairing. Typically, this problem occurs when some cleanup script or other thinks our spelling, hyphenation, or some other type data files aren't needed and deletes them.
If that doesn't work, search for and delete "adobefnt*.lst" files on disk. These are the font cache files and may have gotten corrupted. That's very unusual with more recent versions of Photoshop.
If that doesn't work, it's likely a corrupted font installed - there's a knowledgebase article on finding a corrupted font. You can find that on the Adobe website and follow it.

Photoshop 5.5 & 6.0 wont open or install

This would probably from a corrupted Installation. Try Uninstalling your product first then reboot your system. Retry installing from your installer afterwards. If this does not fix your problem let me know.
