Loading an online level causes Foldit to rage quit. The tutorial levels run normally.
I'm playing on Windows 7 Home Edition, with the newest Foldit. Yesterday, I could run them normally.

New windows installer (if you downloaded fresh install from site - not via automagic updates) put all files in one directory - by default in "program files" foldit directory.

- back files up from program files,
- load new installer,
- install where you want but not in program files c:/foldit is fine,
- do NOT run game,
- copy backups into that new directory w/o overwriting
- run game
It will update and clean itself, all your puzzle and scripts should be safe :)
You can delete old foldit directories and backups.
