Assemblies Will Not Open

I'm wondering if anyone can help me out with a problem I'm having? None of my assemblies will open. The strange thing is that my part files open with no problems. I'm using SolidWorks 2008 SP 5.0. When I try to open an assembly it begins the process of opening but it then shuts down SolidWorks and I get a message box stating "An error has occurred and SolidWorks needs to re-start". The message box gives me the option to "restart and recover files". I have selected this option several times and SolidWorks does restart but it does the same thing when I try to open an assembly. I have never experienced this problem before. What I can tell you is that the problem is consistent. I have opened several parts from several different assemblies and they all open with no problems. I have also tried to open several different assemblies and sub-assemblies, and non have opened and when I try they all shut down the program and give me the same message I spoke about above. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
