Did Windows Restore, now Elements not working.

I did a system restore and now Elements won't work.  I re installed the program from the disc and it still won't work.  It gives the error message the Elements has unexpectedly quit whenever I try to open the editor.  The program worked fine until the restore.  The restore point i choose was long after the original install and shouldn't have messed anything up.  When I originally installed Elements, I put it on my slave drive.  When I re insalled it, I put it on a larger drive.

    Restore might have messed things up. Try re-installing Elements and then check.


    If you do not have the installers for the version of Elements you are using, try looking for the same here.


    Make sure to backup your catalog first. og-photoshop.html

    As said in crash reporter, there may be some issues with your NVIDIA display drive. Try updating/re-installing this driver.
