Elements 6 stopped working when I started to edit

Photoshop elements 6 crashes every time I try to edit a picture. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it but it didn't help. I did a 'repair' of Visual C++2010 x64 and tried to do x86 as well but it said I had a newer version of that one already. I upgraded to windows 10 and photoshop worked normally for a while, then suddenly started crashing. It loads a picture fine, it stops working as soon as I start editing eg: use the eraser tool.

I've resolved my Photoshop problem, it now works perfectly! I downloaded this file from Microsoft https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...
It's Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 and it did the trick. I hope this post is helpful for someone else if they have the same issue.
