My PS Elements 11 constantly crashes. I've tried all the suggestions online and none clear up the problem. I'd like to uninstall the program and then reinstall. Should I / Can I do this?

Yes, do that.  But, uninstall and reboot before reinstalling PSE12.  Also, review before the crash - if there was a problem with another program that Windows may still have as a task to resolve.  If you uninstalled another PSE program then forget to reboot, that can cause a PSE12 installation to crash.  Bytheway, you don't need to uninstall a Photoshop to install another.  Two or more Photoshop programs will work on the same operating system.
