          More details, please. Organizer? Editor? Operating system? What's it doing when it crashes?

            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.
