Apple can't fix your problem. The issue is that your Library is corrupted.
Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
If that fails:
Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .

I appreciate your help and that Apple are resolved. I find it difficult in a country to get assistance where I don't speak the language. I have downloaded iPhoto Library Manager but I'm unable to access my photos at all now. They are showing as being on there but I cannot see them. Also it doesn't have events which is how I usually access and use stored photos. How do I get back to just using iPhoto as it was before or would that eventually be totally corrupted rather than just a few files?
This is a bit of a maze for me. I just use my Mac to write books, blogs and take photos. I have no technical knowledge of how it works. Any suggestions?

Simple surefire fix: Restore fromback up.
