What other processes are running?

Have you tried disabling anti-virus and other utilities that might interfere with other apps?

I uninstalled and reinstalled Elements 9 as well as uninstalled the Canon
utilities programs that may have been bothersome and PSE it is running
much smother now with no high CPU warnings like before. Hope that does the
trick. Thanks
