How I have fixed the Photoshop Error
First, hold down all three Ctrl+Alt+Shift buttons
Now "while keeping those button held," simply open Photoshop or a file that opens with Photoshop
As Photoshop loads, you should get a prompt asking if you would like to "delete the Photoshop settings file", Click yes
You should now be able to start Photoshop and the error message should disappear.
Note: For best results, Press and hold Ctrl+Alt+Shift then (right mouse click) a Photoshop shortcut and select Open.
