    The problem you are facing is probably because of corrupted swf files in your machine. But before advising for reinstallation, can you please share your Operating system information and also if you can see the following folders and files in your machine:



    C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us\Workflow Panels\GuidedEdit.swf

    C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us\Workflow Panels\QuickEdit

    C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\9.0\Locale\en_us\Workflow Panels\QuickEdit\QuickEditAir.swf


    /Application Support/Adobe/Photoshop Elements/9.0/Locale/en_us/Workflow Panels/GuidedEdit.swf

    /Application Support/Adobe/Photoshop Elements/9.0/Locale/en_us/Workflow Panels/QuickEdit

    /Application Support/Adobe/Photoshop Elements/9.0/Locale/en_us/Workflow Panels/QuickEdit/QuickEditAir.swf


    Browse this post prior to uninstall/reinstall to make sure that you actually have missing files or not.
