When I installed Photoshop CS3 Beta, it corrupted something in Photoshop CS2. This error happened immediately after I installed CS3 Beta, but I didn't worry about it at the time... Well, now the Beta has expired, and I haven't received the upgrade from Adobe yet per maintenance agreement. The error occurs when Photoshop CS2 opens and every time I do anything in the program (crop a file, add text, erase, print, change color, change layers, select a tool, etc..). The only time I get this error is using Photoshop CS2 and no other Creative Suite CS2 product.

Here's the error message:
Microsoft visual C++ Debug Library

Debug Assertion Failed!
Program: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Photoshop.exe
File: fprintf.c
Line: 56

Expression: str != Null

For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts.
(Press retry to debug the application)

I do not have Visual C++ installed. I've never had Visual C++ installed. The following solutions have been tried: CS3 Beta has been uninstalled, and methods 1 uninstall and method 2 Adobe CS3Clean Script have not fixed the problem. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop CS2. I've also uninstalled and reinstalling the entire Creative Suite. Nothing works.

My computer has Windows XP Professional service pack 2.
Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 GHz
2 GB Ram

Any assistance or advice would be appreciated.
