[Tex/LaTex] tlmgr error: perl.exe has stopped working


I have been using TeX Live 2010 on my Windows 7 computer for some time now, without problems. Recently I decided to use the TeX Live Manager to check for updates, which were successfully installed. The next time I tried to start the Manager, I started getting the perl.exe has stopped working error. The TeX Live Installation itself is working just fine, the only problem is the TeX Live Manager. I have tried restarting the computer but it didn't help. What should I do to get it to work?

When I tried installing TeX Live 2011 over the Internet in Windows 7 64-bit (running install-tl batch file), I got the same perl.exe has stopped working error. I was thinking to install a TeX using ISO image but finally decided to try again the first method however this time before running the install-tl I installed Perl for Windows (Strawberry Perl version from http://strawberryperl.com/ and then I run the install-tl again. And now everything was fine and I successfully installed the Tex Live 2011!
