Photoshop Elements 11 freezes up and then continues to create 1000s and 1000s AND 1000s of tmp files in the same location as I was trying to save the jpg. Any ideas on what is going on?

    Try resetting the PSE preferences by and check once.


       1. Close Elements.


       2. Launch the Photoshop Elements Welcome Screen and hold down ctrl + alt + shift as you click Edit.


       3. Continue to hold the keys until you see a message box asking if you want to delete Photoshop Elements settings file; click Yes. Elements will open with default preferences.

    - Do you have any anti-virus installed. Try launching with anti-virus off or removing PSE from conflicting list. and then check once.


    - Try switching off the internet and then try once.
