A possible workaround could be to disable the EventLogging feature in GME.
Since you can't launch GME (normally this could be done in the Settings command in the File menu) you could set by hand the EventLoggingEnabled entry to 0 in the Current User registry hive's HKCU/Software/GME entry.
This should solve the problem.
