Did you disable your antivirus/antimalware software during installation? If not, I would uninstall via control panel and reinstall after doing that. Your catalog and photos won't be affected; they're stored separately from the program files.
Please try couple of probable solutions as mentioned below:
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.
Try launching PSE from the welcome screen first. There could be a case that Editor couldn't be launched from Organizer because you haven't yet accepted End User Licence Agreement (EULA)
