RobotC: "Fatal Error"

Last year, we had an issue with RobotC where you would go to open it, but it would immediately close, typically within half a second. We were never able to fix this last year, and when we turned in our school laptops, the tech guys had to completely wipe the laptop for it to be fixed. It just happened to me yesterday, and we have a competition this Saturday, so I need my laptop for coding. Has anyone else had this issue? Or is there an easier way to fix it?
