I have a version of Photoshop Elements that came with a Wacom Bamboo tablet I just purchased at Best Buy. Whenever I try to use the Layer Style option the program crashes.
I it does this continually. I went to the Help > Support option on the tool bar, clicked that, and the program totally crashed once again. I was considering buying Photoshop 5 but I'm reluctant to shell out that kind of money for a program that might be as badly inefficient as PS Elements.

Which version of Photoshop Elements are you using?
Have you installed all the available updates?

I am using Photoshop Elements 8.0.

Shouldn't the Help > Support function without further updates?

How do I find/install updates?

You should be notified of updates, but you can also get to them from the help menu.

There is no reason an up to date version of this program should CRASH. I'm using a brand new Mac Book.

I would prefer to speak to someone directly.
