    Photoshop Elements has stopped working in Windows.


      When I open Photoshop Elements and click on Edit I get an error message which says:  "Adobe Photoshop Elements (Editor) has stopped working"  It worked earlier today, why am I getting this message and how can it be fixed?

          Please try couple of probable solutions as mentioned below:



          Solution 1:

          1. Close Elements.

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

          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.



          Solution 2: In case any network printer is attached try to launch without network or printer uninstall or make different printer as default.

          Solution 3: Try launching with anti-virus off or removing PSE from conflicting list.



          Solution 4:



          On the drive on which you have installed PSE,on my machine it is on C:


          Go  to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements  10\Locales\<locale>\Plug-Ins\Import-Exportand you will find twain  plug-in. Remove that plug-in from that location and copy it somewhere  else.


          Now launch PSE and check if it works.
