You say that Premiere Elements 10 is crashing -- and yet you seem to be talking about the Organizer.
Those are two very different programs.
Does Premiere Elements crash if you import 50 JPEGs into it? Have you ensured that all photos you use in your video projects are no larger than 1000x750 pixels in size?
How much free, clean, freshly defragmented space is on your C drive?
Im talking about the organizer.
The pics are smaller than 1000x750 pixels in size.
I got several hundred gigs on the drive.
I know you've got a relatively new computer -- but try running a Deep Care tune-up with Advanced System Care Free and see if that fixes it.
Also, manually go to Windows Update and ensure you have even the non-critical updates. Doing this sometimes gets you important updates that don't download automatically.
I'm assuming you've got at least a dual-core 2.8 ghz processor and 4 gigs of RAM.
