using joomla 3.4x

Under file options the following error appears:
“Unable to load XML'
preventing me from selecting folders to exclude.


Applying 755 permissions upon the following directories:
1. administrator/components/
2. administrator/components/com_cloner
3. administrator/components/com_cloner/browser and all the files inside it


didn't resolve it,

Any other ideas? Reinstalling didn't work either

Please check your developer console for javascript errors, let me know if you get any output there.
