Skyrim Launcher has stopped working

Hi I hope someone can help, I have been playing Skyrim since Christmas and last played it last weekend 29th Jan. I have tried to play it this weekend but only get the message:

Skyrim Launcher has stopped working.

Is there something I can check to see what the problem is? I do not want to lose my progress.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

So doing some checks and the idea that an update has happened my TESV.exe shows its version as 1.3.10 and my launcher as 1.3.12

The launcher has a modified date of the 4/2/2012 which is when I tried to start the game. TESV has a modified date of 26/12/2011 which is when I installed it. I do not seem to have any downloads waiting. Does this help?

Are you running any mods? If so, temporarily disable them.

Also Verify the Game Cache through Steam.
