I am running Win 7 64 bit.
I have PSE 8 installed and as far as I know its running fine or at least the Editor part is.
However I have just recently ventured into the Organizer and I am not quite sure what happened as it happened so fast but in trying to associate photo files with the organizer I now find that in the left hand pane, I have listed, every folder in my Documents Folder and what is worse I have them all twice over.
When I try to delete them by right clicking and deleting them that also deletes them from my PC to the recycle bin.
I have thought about uninstalling and re-installing to see if that put things back to the way they were but all the talk about deactivating/activating etc; has made me pause for thought.
Any ideas how to get sorted this would be much appreciated.
Since you have just started using Organizer, you've got nothing to lose by starting fresh with a new catalog: use File...Catalog to open the Catalog Manager and create a new, empty catalog, giving it a completely different name. Once that new catalog is working OK, you can delete the old one.
As a side point (since you don't need to do this for this problem), un-installing and re-installing on the same computer and hard drive doesn't require deactivation, etc.
