Suddenly Q won't start

I have been using it today with no problem.
Suddenly, it starts to open, i get a white screen, then it just says it encountered a problem and will report it to windows.

I have restarted Q and windows more than once. I tried the mondo patch and went back to my last working data file.

Nothing has fixed this problem.

Now what?

    Press the Ctrl key when you open Quicken.  

    If the application window doesn't open, I suggest you perform a clean uninstall, install  and update.  If you haven't already, you may want to review:   

    If the application window opens, I suggest you attempt to restore a good data file backup.  If you haven't already, you may want to review:

    I actually tried to use my last good backup. Same file i started this morning. That too failed. I tried validate and supervalidate and even checked all the repair boxes. Validate was working, working, then a message "resulting value too big--enter as more than one transaction. " ????

    Now keep in mind this very file worked fine as is on my laptop.

    As a possible clue, I had a problem making a bill payment using my Chase account. I got an error message about a problem with the payee name--which i had used before. I deleted this payee from my payee list, and then paid it directly from Chase. On the Chase site, i had to enter it as a new payee, which was also peculiar as this a payee i have had for years.

    I think the problem is related to client.wyc file.
    I have no idea what that does, but i see that file changed just as i encountered the problem.
