I have Elements 4.0. It takes it about 8 to 12 minutes for the program to shut down when I need it to.
Anyone else have this problem? Know how to decrease the shut down time? Thanks.

I have found Photoshop (I’m using Elements 4.0) to be very unstable. I’m no longer surprised when it freezes or has a "fatal error" during a DVD burn.

Well, I don’t have a fatal error problem, just the long shut down time.

It’s a true memory hog. Figure out which services you want (I only want to edit) and bypass the others. It is possible to open the edit without Organizer, etc. If you do that you will get much better performance. The other thing is that you do have to have a good supply of memory (256 absolute minimum) and try to close just about everything else on your computer.

I don’t seem to have any problems with mine. I’m running an Athlon64 3500 with 2 gigs of ram. Elements 4 loads in about 14 seconds and when I shut it down it seems to go off instantly. I really think the amount of ram may be the problem and solution.

With two gigs of ram you can go to the moon. Most users don’t have that. You may be right but the program should not assume these exreme limits.

Thanks for the replys. I only open in edit. I have 512mb of RAM. Pentium 4 processor….whatever.
Still takes forever to shut down.
Thanks.
