I have Photoshop Elements 8.0 and I just bought it a month ago, and it has crashed 24 times already, and its always when I'm in the middle of editing, I lose all my work and it just crashes, alllll the time. I'm upset because this costed me $100 and I lose work all the time on it, I can barley use it for 10 minutes without it crashing! And sometimes as soon as I open it it crashes. I bought it at Best Buy so I know its not pirated or anything, whats up with this!!

How did you buy it a month ago? The current version of Elements is 10, so Elements 8 shouldn't have been available for a year or more.

What OS version are you using?

Have you downloaded and installed all the updates?

Does the crash report have more information (faulting module name, or full crash log from MacOS)?

I have same problem. I've had my Elements for a long while. Now I'm in College again, trying to put together a presentation using Premeire and I can't run the organizer without it crashing. Before I get to select any buttons even. I run Win7 x64, 4Gb, quadcore processor. I've downloaded any update the program presents in the updater.

Add me too. I have had Elements 8 for a few years. Also happened to Lightroom 3.4, so I gave up on LR.

It also happened once since I installed PSE 10 today.

No other installed program crashes, so it has to be PSE.
