I cannot get my Blackberry Desktop to open.  An immediate message is displayed" Blackberry Desktop Software has encountered a problem and needs to close." I have done the following:

1.  Rebooted

2. Uninstalled and reinstalled from the website

3,  Uninstalled, gone in to the program files and removed everything I cou;ld find from Research in Motion and then reinstalled from the website and rebooted

Nothing has worked.  My Blackberry Bold 9700 phone is still working just fine but I cannot back it up/
