Solution

This has been known to occur on computers with the Hebrew version of Windows and is related to the RSS Feeds feature.

First, try upgrading to a newer version if possible (See steps here.) and ensure that you are using a compatible Operating System. Also, try performing a clean reinstallation.

If this does not help, please contact Technical Support about a potential fix involving removal of the RSS feed feature to overcome this issue.
