When I start Trados (2009) it gives an error msg "An unexpected error has occurred while loading the application plug-ins"

Error details: '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 1, Position 1.

This happened after I restarted the computer.

I will be grateful if anyone could suggest a work around for this.

Many thanks in advance
