Adobe Photoshop Elements-Editor has stopped working


Recently I read something on Adobe forum and found it very useful. One user was facing a problem after applying 7.0.3 update and suddenly Editor stopped working for him. This was not actually related to update but followin steps solved his problem. I though of capturing these details here:

There are many reasons why the PSE Editor might not getting launched or crashes. Here are some steps you can take to try to fix the problem. Even if you think you’ve tried some of these  before, try them again, precisely as described here:

1.      Delete the Editor’s preferences:

Start PSE to get to the Welcome screen. Hold down the Ctrl, Alt, and Shift keys and click Edit.  Keep holding down the keys until you see a window asking “Delete the Adobe Photoshop Elements Settings File?” Click Yes. (Note that this does not delete the Organizer’s settings.)

2.      Change the default printer, as described in these tech notes:

3.      If you have a Microsoft pointing device, the Microsoft Intellipoint driver software may be conflicting with the Editor. Try uninstalling it and rebooting. (Your device may operate without the software.)

4.      If the Editor crashes after displaying “Building TWAIN menu items” on the splash screen, see this tech note:

5.      Try Adobe’s generic troubleshooting steps.  If you’ve installed third-party plug-ins, start with that step first.
