Which version of PSE?
Which Operating System?
When you crop a photo, are you clicking on green tick (commit) or the red cancel to finish the crop?
Does it just lock out tool selection or can't you even close the editor?
I have Elements 10
I can still crop, but it won't open the edit section.
It is happening more often and staying that way for a lot longer. It would eventually let me start editing again, hours later....but now it seems once it goes off once in the day, after only a few edits, that's it for the day!! I am getting very frustrated!!
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.
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.

Thank you! I will try this today....when I get home from work! I so Apppreciate your help!!! I will let you know if it works!
I will try this too! Thank you!
I tried what you said....it worked wonderfully.....that first time. The next time I used it, it only let me edit about 3-4 pictures. Do I have to do something each time?
Did you tried some of the performance enhancement tips here http://blogs.adobe.com/pselements/tips-to-enhance-photoshop-elements-p erformance/.
No, you do not have to do this each time. Probably as we converse more we should try to figure out any changes being made to your machine, software or workflow or work type which is causing this issue.
I haven't tried any of the things at that link yet. I wanted to try one thing at a time and see what happened from there. I will check out the link and try something and let you know!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
