XML error not resolved by deleting settings folder

I am getting the following XML error - not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1 of Profile0.xml and since I have had this issue I get the message 'unable to load saved game' when I try to load my saved games. I have spent hours online trying to find a resolution to fix this but all suggestions so far have failed. I have deleted the settings folder as many people advised, I have re-installed FM13, I have downloaded an update to my graphics as suggested by PC world, and I have contacted Steam for advice (no response in almost 3 weeks).I have Windows 8 and I believe that I have the latest patch for FM13 as it is on auto update. Please can some one help me as I'm going crazy not being able to play!! Thanks in advance
