Ps Elements 11 Editor won't open or takes a loooong time....

my Ps Elements 11 Editor takes 3-4 mins. to open, if it opens at all.

it seems to get stuck on the "scanning for plug-ins" stage.

at times I get the "program not responding" pop-up.

It makes no difference if I try opening from within Organizer (which works just fine)

or directly from within Windows.

 

I have Topaz labs FX as well as onOne Perfect Effects 4 installed.

 

System: Win 7 pro.

              GeForce 9800 GT (1Mb Ram)

              4 Gb Ram

              2 x 500Gb HDD.

Programs: PsE 11 and Lr 4

 

I've never had this problem with my previous PsE 9 and/or CS5

which have now been completely uninstalled.

 

HELP!!!

 

sey.

    Have you been to the Topaz or OnOne web sites to ensure you have the latest plug-in updates compatible with PSE11?

    Are you editing externally from the Lightroom library (Ctrl+E/Cmd+E) with Lightroom develop settings?

     

    Or is the Editor crashing when launching from scratch and from Lightroom?

    The only thing I can suggest is to rebuild the prefs. Go to the editor menu:

     

    Edit >> Preferences >> General

     

    Choose rebuild prefs on next launch. Then close the Editor and re-launch.
