SnagIt 11 Editor ALWAYS CRASH

I'm a long time user of SnagIt and downloaded the trial of version 11 to see if it was worth upgrading. Apparently, IT IS NOT. I'm on Windows 7 (32bit) and I'm current on all my updates. But, upon capturing, the Snagit Editor opens, hangs a bit on the tutorial pictures before I can select the capture I just did. However, upon selecting the destination to save the file, I get a message that Snagit Editor has stopped working. I exit out of Snagit and restart. Try my capture again and since then, Snagit Editor just crashes without me even being able to get to my capture. I uninstalled and reinstalled SnagIt. I then unchecked the Preview in Editor option and tried again but Editor still crashed right away. The second time made things worst. When Editor crashes, it takes Snagit along with it. So, now BOTH the Editor and Snagit crashes. It's been 30 minutes since I first downloaded and installed version 11 and I've taken all of one screen capture, albeit unsuccessfully. I have since uninstalled Snagit.

What is going on?? Why does Editor keep crashing?
