"500" error in WordPress Widgets

I am using WordPress 3.8 (but I had the same error in 3.7.1) and when I click on Widgets from the control panel, I get a "500 - Internal server error." error from the Windows server. I do not know what is different today from last week - the website was working for a few years without any problems.

I put on DEBUG mode by modifying the wp-config.php file, but this particular page still gives me a 500 error.

I "reinstalled" WP 3.71 without any change, and installed 3.8 without any change.

What can I do?

What can I do?

Use *nix? (sorry...had to say it)

Have you checked the PHP installation?  Maybe it needs to be tweaked or rebuilt?

I am on a shared server, so I am not sure what I would do.

In any case, everything else on the website seemingly works correctly. In fact, it is possible that this particular wigets page was not working for a while, as I do not think I used it ever for this particular website.

Therefore, it does not seem like PHP is corrupted, as I would have expected errors elsewhere.

If that's the case, do you have any oddball plugins that generate a widget?  Maybe disable everything and see if that changes things?

Google Analyticator was the problem. I deleted it and everything is working.

Thank you for the suggestion.
