Microsoft’s update also provides an easy workaround.
First, install Adobe Photoshop in a folder that’s hidden by default and then double-click on the .exe file.
After that, double-tap on the Adobe icon in the Start menu and choose Tools.
On the Tools menu, choose Manage.
On Adobe’s Help page, scroll down to the Adobe Help section.
Click on the Reset button and click OK.
When the process is complete, open Adobe Photoshop and click on the Save button.
The Adobe icon should disappear from the Start screen.
After you restart your computer, it should run smoothly again.
If the Adobe problem still persists, Microsoft recommends using a third-party tool to fix the problem.
