Elements 8 very slow

Running Elements 8 version 8.0.40. I upgraded my MacBook Pro to High Sierra 10.13.8.
Yesterday Elements wouldn’t open because of a license problem.
Today it took 5 minutes just to get to Elements Hub.
I have 4 GB memory and my computer has been slower since upgrade to High Sierra.
Do I need more memory or upgrade to Elements 9 or reinstall Elements 8?
Please help.


Cubase 8.0.x is not officially supported with macOS 10.13. But I wouldn’t think this is a side-effect. So I don’t believe upgrade to Cubase 9.5 would solve this issue.

To have more memory could solve it. To clean-up the system (First Aid from the Disk utility) could help too.

Thanks for your advice.
