I have recently purchased elements 9. I have noticed that on occasion whilst working with it, that the screen will freeze up with the 'whirlwind' circle still turning before it either continues after 2 minutes or it shuts down. This is annoying. I am using Windows 7.
I s here a patch for this, i have downloaded the 9.03 updatre but ti makes no difference at all.
