Error loading xml file

I was running Filezilla 3.0.7-rc1 and then had a power outage. When I restarted FileZilla, I got the message

"Error loading xml file - Could not load "C:\Users\werwin\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\filezilla.xml" , make sure the file is valid. For this session, default settings will be used and any changes to the settings are not persistant."

Even after restarting Filezilla, the message still appears. I assume my filezilla.xml file got corrupted somehow. Could you make a fix that if it is corrupted, then to create a new one?

FYI, I opened the specified filezilla.xml file and it was empty - contained nothing.

Removing the filezilla.xml file stopped the popup message. However, can you add some code to automate this process if it happens?

The error message tells you to "make sure the file is valid". To test an XML file for validity just open it on your browser, it will complain if it isn't.

BTW: , quite cheap nowadays.
