Spinning circle by start up and no process

Hello dear Orchids team,

Thank you so much for your work. I’ve been using Orchids with no problems until the point when I decide to load an extra database. It took it several hours, then crashed. Since then when I drop a sound file it can play it back but doesn’t analyse and this spinning circle on the top right won’t stop.
I shredded all the files, databases, libraries and even max from my computer, reloaded Orchids but it seems to be the same problem. I have not updated the system or changed anything it must be because of this failed library. Also used features on the right side of Analysis tab seem to be checked but it does not display the names, any content but the boxes.
