BB desktop software stopped working

I recently started having issues with my blackberry desktop software. I'm running Windows XP on my machine & using a BB Bold 9900 (non-bes) on T-Mobile (software 7.1.0 bundle 2508). Prior to this error, I was using BB desktop software without any issues since late 2011. Although no longer involved, I've been in the wireless industry for 22 year & have been a longtime user/supporter of BB. I was able to do my daily sync on weds 1/15/2014 no problem. When I tried to do it again on thurs, I had issues. The software opens then freezes up when I plug my device in. I left things be until the weekend then tried removing/reinstalling the desktop software. That didn't resolve my issue as then the software wouldn't even open. I tried doing a few system restores to an earlier date (1/14, 1/13 & 1/12) to no avail. I also found the article Cleanly "Starting Over" with the Desktop Software (non-BES) http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Desktop-Software-for-PC/Cleanly-quot-Starting-Over-quot-with-... on your support forum. I followed all the instructions of this article for a clean reinstall with no luck. The only thing can think of is my system did an auto update Weds night of Adobe Reader & Microsoft Windows. Any thoughts for me? I'm stumped. Device still works flawlessly. Thanks!
