Elements 12 stops working after 2 to 5 minutes
I recently upgraded from Photoshop elements 8 to elements 12. When I start Photoshop elements 12 and load my translated catalog, Photoshop Elements 12 stops working after two to five minutes. I am running elements 12 version 18.104.22.168. I am running Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 on a Dell desktop with a i7 CPU. I am running Java version 7.0.510 and Microsoft NET Framework 4.5.1. This same behavior (photoshop stops working after a few minutes) occurs on my Dell laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. My digital photo catalog contains approximately 9400 items in 459 folders (all still photos) for a total of approximately 30 GB. Please advise me on a solution.
