    Lightroom 5.2 will no longer open


      A few days ago my Lightroom 5.2 stopped working.  When I click on the icon it starts to open, displays the name of the catalog and even some of the data (I can see the task bar on the left side which displays the number of photos in the catalog) but it never fully launches.  I do not get any error message but when I try to close the program I get the standard Windows error message of "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 64-bit is not responding".  If I click on the "show problem details button" I get the following details:



        A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

      I have tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the software but it did not fix the issue.  Also, the same problem happens even if I try to open a catalog directly (as opposed to just clicking on the Lightroom desktop icon).

      Any ideas / suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
