[PD] PD keeps crashing

Well, this isn't a fix, but a hack to fix your specific problem.

Open the .pd file in a text editor. Search for the name of the object 
you're looking for, since it's spigot, which is common, and you might 
have many, look above and below it to make sure it's the right one. I 
think objects added to the file in the order that they're created. Then 
either delete it, or try to delete the pertinent "#X connect" line, 
which is the patch cord, but I'm not sure how one would identify the 
cord with the object.

Hope that helps,

I was trying to figure out how I could make the left and right arrow keys to control a slider, and I finally got it to work. the only problem is that there is a spigot function that is not needed, but whenever I try to delete it, windows jumps in and says:
