Windows Live Writer Has Stopped Working

Additional Details
I have been using Windows Live Writer for several months now and I love it.  However, I have been unable to sign in for the past month.   I get the message "Windows Live Writer Has Stopped Working.  Windows is checking for a solution to the problem."

I have tried repairing, uninstalling and installing, deleting unpublished drafts, and checking my personal firewall to make sure that Writer is allowed access.  None of these steps has fixed the error message.
Please help!

If you are using plug-ins with Windows Live Writer; try removing them… manually.

If you find yourself needing to remove a plug-in from Windows Live Writer, you have few options.


 I hope this helps...
