Photoshop Elements 2021 has suddenly become very slow to open on computer running Windows 10

Yesterday, my shortcut to PSE 2021 editor stopped working altogether.  Spinning circle would flash and then stop and nothing happened.  Went into program files and made new shortcut.  It opens slowly, (with that unknown background in screenshot) gets to scan for plug ins and then seems to stop completely.  Will suddenly open after 5, 10, maybe 15 minutes.  Not kidding....takes that long.  I actually saw a question I could answer, did that, and still waited for editor to open.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Have shutyour computer all the way off, then restarted it?  Sometimes left over processes (mini little programs that have a particular job) are left running after you clsoe the program.

Mitt Adobe Photoshop vägrar skriva ut till den printer jag valt, Epson Ecotank, utan väljer

alltid en Xerox Phaser. Vad göra. Programmet fungerar allt mera uselt. Ominstallera? det är

uppdaterat.

Thank you for responding.  Yes, one of the first things I did.
