Windows Live is throwing an exception when clicking on Options or Accounts from Tools Menu.

    Question

  • Recently, this started happening.  Windows Live Writer will fail to open the Options or Accounts menus (from the tools menu) without crashing.  It has also stopped auto hotlinking the hyperlinks.   Here is a paste of the Diagnostics when the crash happens.  Any Ideas?
