    This one is particularly annoying. I use Creative Suite 2, Photoshop with Windows XP Pro. I have the latest update(s).
    When I open Photoshop, I constantly receive the message “Could not import the clipboard because an unexpected end-of-file was encountered.” I hit [OK] and the message reappears in about 5 sec.
    I have both run Photoshop as the first map on the computer (prior to anything being on the Clipboard) and I have manually cleared the Clipboard.
    I have also re-installed the CS2.
    Please help…

    Hi. I haven’t encountered this problem before, and I could be way off base, but have you ever tried some form of clipboard management software? Many of the older MS Office products had one.

    1) If so, have you tried removing it? (Look through Add/Remove Programs) It may be the culprit…
    2) If not, have you tried installing one and using it to clear the clipboard?

    Sorry I can’t offer any more advice.

    I am a simple creative professional that can get my Adobe suite and a few other creative tools to do what I want. Barely. 🙂

    1. Open “My Computer.” In Windows XP, the icon is on the desktop. In Windows Vista or Windows 7, you must access this via the “Computer” option in the Start menu.
    2. Double-click the “C” drive, followed by the “Windows” folder inside. Locate the temporary Photoshop folder, which will look similar to this: “Photoshop Temp6382948398.” Double-click the folder when you find it.
    3. Locate the file inside the temporary folder that matches the name of the corrupted file. Double-click it to open it in Photoshop.
    4. Click “Save As” in the “File” portion of the main menu bar. Save it in a different location and under a different name.

    As alternatives solution might be presented… Photoshop Repair Toolbox – one of the tools provided restoration of corrupted .psd files
