Photoshop Elements 8 Will No Longer Save

Photoshop Elements 8 (PE8) has stopped being able to save anything. I open an image, try to save as .psd and get an error, "Could not complete your request because of a program error." I tried saving to the current folder, to c:\data (close to root), closing and opening the program, rebooting, etc. I tried saving in .jpg as well.

The image is 4050 x 2278 = 9.23MP, 3,676KB.

I read somewhere that I should delete the profile file but I can not find it, mainly because Windows 7 does not grant me access to system files. My PE8 software is up to date when I check for updates.

Environment: Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel Core Quad CPU, 2.5 GHz, 8 GB memory, 64 bit operating system.
