T thank you, everybody. I will try all of these things. I know I only have 8G in my computer at this time, and I have been jonesing to upgrade something, so maybe that will take care of the problem AND satisfy my builder urge, lol! And I do have lots of cleaning up to do, on files seen and unseen. I really appreciate the help, and I'll post back when I've tried these. I also reset my preferences in PS and it did not crash this time.
