Solidworks 2013 SP4.0 always crashing on startup

Just installed SW2013 4.0 and it crashes each and every time when the splash screen says "loading task panes".  Never fails, 100% repeatable.  I have tried a number of different things, a few different installs, back to SP0 currently, safe mode appears to try to start and then nothing happens, tried disabling the video card (GeForce GTX 560 Ti - not approved, but does have the latest driver).  Really struggling here and have spent hours on the forums.  We are no longer on subscription so the VAR is not going to help.  Don't know how to view the DMP file and the performance log doesn't tell me much, but I don't know what I should be looking for.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?  We are stumped!

 

Thanks!
Jason
