After using earlier versions and now PSE8 I can no longer open any files, even the ones that were recently opened. Program opens fine, just won't open files it should and has in the past.

Hi Jack,

If you files don't open in Editor, you can try deleting the Adobe Photoshop Elements Settings file. Launch Editor by keeping Ctrl + Alt + Shift pressed. A dialog will ask you to delete Settings file. Select Yes to it.

Re-launch Editor once this is done. This will delete all saved settings and create fresh new settings for the application. Try this and let me know if that helped :)
