I installed Elements yesterday and captured an hour of video no problem. I tried capturing today and all I get on clicking the capture button is a pop up capture window (the main monitor window remains blank).

The pop up window seems to be capturing (although you can't see any footage) but I tried to minimise it and it closed completely. I restarted the programme, left the PC to capture the footage and when I came back and entered my screensaver password the whole elements programme closed down.

I restarted it again and tried opening the file it said I'd captured but there was nothing there.

I bought Elements as I'm heartily sick of glitches in Studio. I'm now beginning to wonder if something is wrong with my PC. Any ideas?

many thanks
