FM2012 crash

Hello everyone! I have a crash in FM2012. Since one month ago that I can not access the window of the game in the stadium. There is a general error that says:

- " XML parsing error!
not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1 of views -v1 - opposition-tactic-views.xml "

Then, the game locks up and including computer graphics, which forces me to restart the computer itself.
Please, somebody help me. The same has happened to someone here?
thank you very much

Try this.

XP:
My Computer
'Tools'
'Folder Options'.
The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
My Computer
'Organize'
'Folder and Search Options'.
Then go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Then delete the following folder:

XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\Settings

Vista/Win7:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\Settings


You may have to uninstall and install but try to see if the fix works first before installing again.

Im having a similar problem but my error reads:

not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1 of replay speed.xml.

the game also seems to have killed the performance of my 2 month old laptop!
