Layers disappear when I click on them

I have photoshop elements 9. When I go to click on a layer to move it, the layer disappears or moves to an obscure location without me moving the cursor. I have tried restarting the program but it does not seem to work. Any suggestions?

    Where are you clicking? In the layers panel or in the main image window with the move tool?

    If you move a layer below a layer with no transparency in it--i.e., the whole layer is opaque, it will disappear since what's on top covers what's below it. If that's not what's happening, try deleting the preferences: quit the editor, then restart it while holding down ctrl+alt+shift (command+option+shift on a mac), and keep the keys down till you see a window asking if you want to delete the settings file. You do.
