Windows 7: Unable to open Win7 normally with Photoshop Essentials 11 installed

Win7 Ultimate x64
Unable to open Win7 normally with Photoshop Essentials 11 installed

I have been using PSE 7 for a few years. I just bought PSE 11. The PSE 11 instruction
sheet said it is OK to have two versions installed at the same time. I installed PSE 11.

I restarted the computer and Win7 wouldn't open. I tried a couple of times and
then opened Win7 in Safe Mode. I used System Restore to eliminate PSE 11 and,
and after a restart, Win7 opened normally (with PSE 7 still installed).

I uninstalled PSE 7 and restarted Win7 normally. I installed PSE 11 and Win7
would not open. In Safe Mode I uninstalled PSE 11 and reinstalled PSE7 and Win7
is opening normally now.

Did I just waste a lot of money upgrading to PSE 11?
Adobe Forums have not been able to provide an answer to this problem.
Does anyone here have a good idea?

Windows 10 64 bit

I have PSE 11 installed (installed about a month ago) and not having any problems.

I don't know what to tell you other than try installing PSE 11 as Administrator and see if that helps.

Does Win 7 start at all? Did you try the Repair My Computer option when you press F8 (should be on the menu with Safe Mode and other options).

Win7 Ultimate x64

I did run Startup Repair on the Win7 installation DVD. It found no problems.

I'll try adminstrator mode.
