Question Sony ereader software will not launch

My first post - I'm really impressed with this community and have already made use of postings advising how to unfreeze my 505 and what might be causing it to freeze. Also was sent a couple of free books by a member to get me started, everyone here is so generous!

Lately I'm having problems launching the Sony ereader software I've used it OK before, haven't updated it or my operating system (Windows XP) but now it won't open. When I double click its icon, or try to launch it in other ways, the hourglass comes up, goes away again and nothing happens. No error messages, nothing. I haven't tried getting rid of it and reinstalling as I'm concerned that might affect my use of the 505 (would its authorisation become invalid?)

It's not critically important, as I've downloaded Calibre (wow!!!) so am using that for my day to day book management. However if I need the Sony software in the future I could be stuck.

Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening and what I could try?

Many thanks
