Default After 9.0.3 upgrade Pro Tools Freezes Loading

Here's my problem.
Been running Pro Tools 9.0.2 - no problems on Windows 7. Did the upgrade 9.0.3.

Started the upgraded PT - mid-load it freezes and a box comes up:

ProTools.exe - Bad Image

"C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Common Files\Digidesign\DAE\Plug-Ins\Structure.bak.dpm is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing again or contact, etc"

So I click "Okay"
Box goes away - PT still frozen - won't load - can't close.

So - here's where it gets interesting -

somehow, the first time it happened; I re-started PT -
a window came up saying I could only run one PT at a time.

I closed that window.

And ANOTHER window opened:

"Move Unauthorized Plug-ins"

"Protools could not load the following Plug-Ins either because no valid authorization could be found, the iLok key was not connected or the plug in was damaged:

This window gives me the choice:

"Move the plug-ins to the Plug-ins (unused) folder - Yes or No"

Well I don't know if I want to do that - so I select No.

And the previously frozen PT sprang into life, loaded and seems to be working as it should. I have repeated this phenomenon.

Since I have not removed the iLok key since the day I activated the program - I doubt it's that causing the authorization problem.

I'm just wondering what anybody else thinks I ought to do.

Should I move the structure.bak.dpm plug-in?

Anybody think that might solve the loading problem?

I'd appreciate some opinions - thanks in advance.
