Can't launch StencylWorks at all

Hi

I downloaded and launched SW a few nights ago and it launched fine. I was on the second or third page of the crash course, having saved a new project just to mess about with, when it froze up on me, so I closed it and tried to launch it again.
I logged in but didn't get the same stuff in the main window (the various icons and wotnot). All I got was a long dashed 'new game' box (not the smaller one I was supposed to get) and nothing else.
I tried starting a new game but SW hung and told me it couldn't connect. Same happened when I tried to launch StencylForge.
Looking in the DOS window which runs behind it was just looping over and over, occasionally flashing up info saying 'The system cannot find the path specified'.

Since then I've uninstalled and reinstalled it a dozen times and moved everything to my desktop. Still nothing.
I've tried HotSpotShield without success and I can't even open the debug version of SW. It flashes up a DOS screen for a fraction of a second... but that's it.

The (even more) irritating thing is that it works on my wife's laptop  >:(

Any ideas/suggestions would be gratefully received.
TIA

What OS are you on?

Can you look into this for me on your computer if you are on windows?

1. Do you see Program Files/StencylWorks folder?

2. Next go to your Document/<user name> folder. Do you also see StencylWorks folder?
