Win 7

I wanted my brand new Windows 7 to operate Photoshop 7 and play Railworks (train driver simulator)
I installed Photoshop and found that any image within was locked to the top bar. No resizing...minimizing..saving..cropping. Only way to clear was to close programme.
I then tried installing railworks. Despite having the disk "Steam" hijack the whole experince. I had to endure a 60 minute download. After this on attempting to play i get the following error message :- "RailworksProc2.exe. had failed to open.
At this point I rung the PC vendor and checked about a total reformat and fresh install of Windows 7. This I did.
After Photoshop 7 run ok (allthough everything seemed undersize).
I then endured another railworks download..this also worked great.
Imagine my dissapointment when opening Photoshop again and finding the old problem was back.
Whats the way out here......
