Photoshop Elements 2022 (and 2021) crashes as soon as I open the editor

Hi folks

Last Sunday, everything worked perfectly. Today, I wanted to process my pictures (Canon, CR2), which worked well as usual (with the 2021 version). As soon as I open the picture in the Editor, everything freezes, nothing works, and I have to use the Task-Manager to end the program. I deinstalled the 2021 version, installed it again > same problem. I bought the 2022 version, installed it > same problem. I manually installed the newest Camera Raw version > still the same problem.

Did anybody experience this as well? This is really annoying. My laptop runs on Windows 10 Home with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti.

Your help is much appreciated!

Best wishes,


Crash or freeze
