If you have your serial #, you can download an installer for the current version of Elements from here: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/photoshop-elements-downloads.html

Instructions for downloading older versions of Adobe apps here: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/downloaded-older-app.html

If you don't remember your serial # but you've registered your product, you can sign into adobe.com and access your serial #s here: https://account.adobe.com/products

If you've lost an activation because of a hardware failure and the system no longer runs, go to this page and work with a chat agent. They should be able to restore your activation: https://www.adobe.com/about-adobe/contact.html

I have Elements 5, the downloads start with Elements 7. What do I use for Elements 5?

Unfortunately, we no longer offer a trial download of PSE9. We only have the current versions of our software available for trials.

You could find a computer that has a DVD drive and either use a network connection or an external hard drive to the move the files to your computer.

Having a DVD drive is one of the listed system requirements: http://www.adobe.com/products/photosh...
(NOTE: these requirements are for PSE10, but the DVD drive requirement has been around since version 8).
