    Hello and welcome to RetouchPRO.

    Page faults are a problem with the operating system (OS), not Photoshop. PS may have been running at the moment but the OS is what went south on you.

    Can you provide some additional information, such as:

    Which version of Windows (95, 98, Home, etc.) or Mac OS are you running?

    How much RAM do you have?

    How big (in MB) was the image you were working on? Lots of layers or just a Background?

    What else was running on your system when the problem occurred?

    Are you saying your computer now runs slow since this problem occurred and didn't before?

    Does running slow mean any application or only Photoshop?

    Does it run slow with other images or only the one you were working on when it crashed?

    This type of info will help narrow the possibilities.
