          Welcome to the forum.


          Are you referring to the Organizer in Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements, or do you have the bundle with both programs?


          If Photoshop Elements, then THIS is the forum that you need.


          Can you also list the complete text of the error message? Mention of a font is odd, as the GUI (Graphical User Interface) for Adobe programs will use a system font, and if, upon launch, there is a font error message, it would tend to indicate that you have a corrupt system font installed. That is why I am asking for the full text of the error message. That second text string indicates a memory address, which should not be a direct issue with a corrupt font - hence my confusion.


          Also, what Operating System (OS) are you using?


          Good luck,

              I would definitely post to the Photoshop Elements Forum, as the folk there might recognize the exact error message, and know the fix.


              A memory address error is often cause by some program, or process, that loads at bootup, this is either mis-reporting the exact memory used, or is telling the OS that it has released certain memory addresses, when it has not. This ARTICLE might be helpful in paring down the programs, and processes, that load.


              Good luck,
