Sorry to hear about your problem and I certainly can understand your  

Can you give us some information about the error message(s) you are  
getting and some information from the .log file? Also, is the problem  
occurring when you typeset the document and/or when you run bibtex, etc?

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
