Either you have a corrupt .RData file in the directory you are starting R in or the file is being read incorrectly (e.g. because of a corrupted file system or hardware issues).

Reinstalling etc will not remove the .RData file, and you need to do so yourself.

Starting R with --vanilla is always a good check for local configuration issues.
