There are a recent threads in this forum about using Dxtory material, and IIRC Xvid CODEC.
I would look at:
PrE is designed to edit footage from video cameras, but can work with various video screen-cap software, or certain capture devices, but one needs to apply certain settings to help PrE handle that odd footage. The settings will differ by software, or equipment.

None of the links I am going to post have DIRECT application to your Dxtory problem so feel free to ignore this entire message if you wish
BUT - as Hunt says, not all video works well (if at all) in THIS particular video editing software... so you may need to use a different video editor
Screen captures fall into that "not well, if at all" category... so, on to other software problems... so you will know that Dxtory is not the only problem

Yea the links didn't direcly help me with my problem, but they helped with something that might prevent this problem.
The codec-links gave some good information about the weird codec Dxtory is using, and also some alternative codecs. I'm for example going to use lossless codecs like "Lagarith lossless codec" or Dxtory´s own alternative called "PackBit codec", and hopfully not having this problem again.
Now what I did, was like John T Smith said, using another program to edit. But what I did, was I found the crash point which was at 00:13:41:26 in my video, went 11 sec back till 00:13:30:00 and made a cut, went 19 sec forward from the crash point, and made another cut. I then removed the video clip I have made, so I was left behind with a 30 sec gab.
Then I went to Windows Live Moviemaker, and made a precise replica of the clip I just removed, rendered the moviemaker clip, and placed it in the gab in my premiere elements project.
It worked fine with no crash! The only down side is for those 30 seconds, there's a little quality drop, and a little switch in the sound, but better that than nothing
Thank you both so much for helping me! With the new codec I got from Hunts links, I will hopefully not meet this problem again, and if I do, John T Smith helped me with the movie maker solution.
Glad that you found a solution to your issue.
Since the same CODEC was used in all of the material (if I read correctly), I wonder what was wrong at the "crash point," that area that you replaced?
Anyway, you go the Project done, and some days, that is as good as it gets.
Thanks for reporting on what worked for you.
