Approaching the end of the "year," I decided to skip a few weeks and go to the first week of the next year, the DOHA event. The system made me go to the double's portion of the Shanghai Master's Tournament, in the current year. I played it and won, saw the cup, check my standings, but when I clicked the next tournament, the system started cycling through the weeks of the year, and continued doing that very rapidly continuously.
I've tried a few things like closing the program and restarting it, and reloading my saved profile and then quitting the Shanghai. But these attempts didn't help.
I did create a new profile, which will allow me to begin all over again, but it took me a few months to get to this point: #1 in doubles and #18 in singles at the "Pro" level, and I'd really like to continue.
I have XP Professional and a registered version of TE 2006, with the latest patches.
