First off let me say I never let my editing computer go anywhere near the Internet for that self same reason, although I know a lot of people who do.
I can't help you much only to give you a link to the Adobe Premiere Elements Forum, I'm sure if you post on there someone will help, they are very good
Adobe Forums: Forum: Adobe Premiere Elements
Best of luck
