Good Morning everyone,

For some reason my Trados 2014 Freelance SP2 software has stopped working for a reason that I cannot work out. I can open the program fine, create a project in exactly the same way as I have been doing for years, using exactly the same kinds of files (simple Word 97-2003 docs, because Trados 2014 for some reason never allows docx files). As soon as I open the editor, however, the whole program freezes, task manage says it is inactive and there is no other option but to close it in task manager.

I have tried reinstalling the program twice now, to no avail. My windows firewall has it on the safe list and I have made no changes to my computer. Does anybody have any idea what might be causing this and how to solve it? It is highly frustrating! I would be very grateful for any tips.

Thanks and have a great day,
