My Photoshop Elements 4.0 has stopped responding. I tried to reinstall to fix the problem but everything just locks up. I can't access any of my pictures. I need Help!

Did it ever work? What changed? What OS are you using?

Your images aren't stored "in" Elements. Elements simply catalogs the location of the images on your hard drive.

I have operated with Photoshop for at least 5 years on the same Dell XPS running Windows 7. I haven't changed anything on my machine and Photoshop Elements just stopped working. I uninstall the program and tried to reinstall from my disk several times and that failed. I have removed the program. Fortunately I found my pictures under Dell Photo Stage.
