Dear translators using Trados Studio 2009 Freelance!

I'm new here but I'm hoping you can help me:)

This evening I tried to start my Trados and it wouldn't. The error note just said 'Specified cast is not valid' and then Trados would close and send error info to Microsoft (I'm using Windows XP). MultiTerm opens with no problem.

I restarted the computer, then reinstalled Trados, but with no effect.

I haven't changed anything in my computer recently, haven't installed anything, Trados was working fine all untill today.

If anyone out there knows how I could make Trados start, I'd be very grateful for any useful hints.
