photoshop elements 6 won't open

Have installed photoshop elements 6 on a Sony laptop running windows XP, with 1.66 ghz processor. It was successfully installed and registered but every time I try to open it I get the message "...has encountered a problem and needs to close". I have reinstalled the programme several times. Any advice would be appreciated.

It's all looking a tad complicated for me. I think I'll pass for the time being and stick to a dodgy Elements 6 on the PC and Pixelmator on the iMac. I've also got Photoshop 7 on an old Powermac.

Many thanks

sadmancol - Got as far as >username>application data>Adobe> but no further,

I failed to read this the other day - It was most likely that you needed to Show Hidden Files and Folders - the reason you weren't able to proceed any further. For future reference (and you may want to give it a try sometime) follow the instructions in this link
