Windows 7: Windows Live Photo Gallery error

Windows Live Photo Gallery error

I am having problems opening this program. I had this problem before and corrected it by going in under
  1. Click Start, click Run, type%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Photo Gallery, and then click OK.
  2. Delete any existing instance of "OLD_Pictures.pd4" and "OLD_Pictures.pd5."
  3. Locate and then right-click "Pictures.pd4" or "Pictures.pd5."
  4. Rename "Pictures.pd4" to "OLD_Pictures.pd4" or rename "Pictures.pd5" to "OLD_Pictures.pd5."
This time when I went to this, my file was like #4 except that it had at the end "_corrupted" so I still went ahead and put "OLD_" in front of "Pictures.pd5_corrupted". This time it did not work, so I went back and took off the _corrupted and this didn't work either.

The date of this file was like a week ago, so probably when I tried to add a photo last week, something happened. I don't understand why this keeps happening.

Can someone please help me?
