when i click on the FM desktop icon to load the game, a window saying XML parsing error not well formed (invalid token) at line 1 of default.xml, pops up twice, which you then have to close down twice for the game to start. When in the game after 5 mins or so the same window will pop up and ill have to restart my laptop. Why does this happen? and how can i fix it? please help!!!
Hi Dude, here you go:

Try deleting all the files in the Settings folder from the following program path as detailed below:

--Windows XP:

My Computer -> Local Disk (C -> Documents and Settings -> <username> -> Application Data -> Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2012 -> Settings

-- Windows Vista / Windows 7:

Computer -> Local Disk (C -> Users -> <username> -> AppData -> Roaming -> Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2012 -> Settings

Once the files are deleted, refresh the dektop and open the game again... you will have to go to "Load game" "load last game will not work"

If you are unable to locate the folders please ensure that hidden folders are enabled as detailed below:

- Click on Start
- Select Control Panel
- Select Folder Options*
- Select View
- Select Show Hidden files and folders


*If Folder Options is not shown:
Windows XP/Vista : Select Classic View from the Control Panel.
Windows 7 : Select Large Icons from View By
