unhandled exception KeyError:'draw_hidden_section_indicators"

After updating to Calibre .9 (running Windows 7X64 Pro) an error Window popped up when I try to start Calibre. When I click Okay, it keeps popping up. I can't get into Calibre.

I tried using a Windows Restore Point and rolled back to Calibre .8.8, but the Window keeps popping up. The Windows doesn't permit me to access Calibre. The only way I can close it is by closing Calibre in Task Manager.

When I click Show Details, I get the following:

calibre, version 0.8.8
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>KeyError</b>:'draw_hidden_section_indicators'

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\widgets.py", line 994, in paintEvent
KeyError: 'draw_hidden_section_indicators'


I have a large Ebook library and don't want to rebuild it. Any help would be appreciated.

You may have a bad Windows font (or non-font garbage in the fonts folder)

That error indicates a corrupted install. Do a clean install.

Uninstall, delete C:\\Program Files\\Calibre2
(or wherever you chose to install calibre). Then re-install. And
dont worry, uninstalling will not affect your books/settings.

Thanks. Uninstalling and reinstalling did the trick.
