    Hello xnjbx,

    Please try the steps bellow and let us know what happens :

    1. Restart the computer in Safe Mode;

    2. Set your computer to display hidden objects;

    3. Browse to the next location:

    C:\ACER\Preload\Autorun\APP\Adobe Photoshop Elements 6\ and delete the "" file .

    4. Reboot your computer normally and let us know what happens .


    - restart the computer;

    - repeatedly press the "F8" key several times before Microsoft Windows begins to load (you need to press "F8" until you will be displayed a text menu);

    - select "SAFE MODE" in the text menu and press "Enter".

    - wait while Windows loads in Safe Mode; this process ends with a confirmation message; click "Yes" to acknowledge.


    - go to your "Control Panel" and open "Folder Options";

    - then go to the "View" tab and perform the changes listed below:

    * check "Display contents of system folders"

    * check "Show hidden files and folders"

    * uncheck "Hide file extensions for known file types"

    * uncheck "Hide protected operating system files"

    - click "Apply" and then "OK" to exit.

    NOTE: On Microsoft Windows Vista you will apply the same steps except for selecting "Display contents of system folders".

    Thank you.
