    First guess would be a corrupt driver or twain or one that needs to be updated, but if you reinstall & update and still have problems....hmmmm.

    In brief it looks like XP and Elements sometime clash and as a result the user's account is damaged and according to the threads you have to create a new one....

    Error or freeze occurs when you install Photoshop or Photoshop Elements
