First off, you cannot upgrade from PSA SE to PSE 4. Do you have the full PSE 4 product or what?
You need to fix the dameage done by Picassa first. Have you tried a File/Reconnect All Missing Files ?
BTW, which version of Windows do you have?

IM THINKING IT'S WORTH THE EXTRA THIRTY DOLLARS TO JUST HAVE THEM SEND IT TO ME ON A CD!
I just finished reconnecting all my photos. I have the full PSE (original version, I think), but it's not installed on my laptop. Should I try installing it and see if that makes a difference? I'm using Windows XP Pro, but if and when I F-disk my computer, I will probably switch back to XP Home.
Sorry, that wasn't very clear. I have had the full, original version of PSE (1.0?) for ages (on CD), but never installed it on my laptop. But since I already had that, my father thought it was logical to purchase the upgrade rather than the full version. He purchased the download and put it on CD for me, and it's this CD that isn't working. Would it help if I installed my original version of PSE and then tried the upgrade? Any chance that would cause more problems? Is it better to wait until after I F-disk?
Thanks for your advice! I'm really not very computer savvy, so I apologize if I just sound like an idiot.

That might be a good way.
BTW, what exactly do you mean by "F-disk"?
Good question! I guess F-disk is my dad's way of saying "format the hard drive". He tells me that there's an F-disk command that does this. I didn't know what he was talking about when he said it, either.
Do I need to uninstall PSA SE before I install Elements?

No. It doesn't actually matter.

Does PSE4 capture any of the collection or tag info from PSA SE? If I'm considering PSE4 at some point in the future, should I even bother with cataloging more images in PSA SE?

Yes. All that info will be reusable in PSE 4.
