Combo Boxes issue on Windows 7

5 posts in this topic

:wacko:

Hi...recently I installed windows 7 Ultimate x86 version,

while working whenever a combo box appears in any application other than windows inbuilt, windows seven tends to close the box as soon as it is opened for selection.

Any help wud be appreciated......! :hello:

Can you give examples of some of these programs? Or are these apps you have created?

Have you modified your Windows 7 at all, or also do you try open Photoshop as admin? This is strange because I run Photoshop CS4 (I have design suite cs4) at work with Windows 7 Professional x86 and have not encountered that problem. Also, is your account a limited-user or do you use the Administrator account?
