Configuration System failed to initialize
A few more details would be helpful - not an issue I have experienced, but, as usual, Google is your friend .......

Pete, It's the only message I get when logging on - nothing else, but it does/has allow me t get online regardless.
Here's a screen shot:
Screen shot is no show
Sorry; I didn't know how to do it, but figured it out (I hope)!
You nailed it
As I said it is not an issue that I have experienced or dealt with before - hence my pointing you to a Google search.
This post would seem to be a good starting point - just ignore the rant in the first post!
I did a google search before I posted on BBS but was not able to find any useful information I could follow or understand.
"Another instance is running". You are trying to run a program twice & hence you are getting this error. You will have to find the culprit.
I have no idea what programs I am trying to run more than once at a time. How do I find out what programs are running?
I've logged of of my computer & when I log back on I have only logged into one browser, google chrome; I do not think that is a program, but perhaps it is. Other than that I log on to my email or go to a webpage via the browser. This has been happening for more than two days now, even when I have the computer completely off between times I've logged back on.
Download & run Autoruns for Windows. This utility enables you to see what all programs auto startup & gives you the control to disable them.
Go through each & every entry and disable duplicate entry. Reboot & see if the problem goes away.
I ran Autoruns for Windows as well as checked Programs and Features on my computer. There are no duplicate programs installed on my computer.
I suggest you follow the instructions given in the thread I referred to here ....

Which thread was that that I did not follow???
The link I posted in post #7 above.
Forgive me Pete, however I do not see that link. If you would please send it again I would deeply appreciate.

See Most Helpful Reply - second post in the thread.
In case you are not sure of it links are coloured blue in posts, as above.
Both your links open OK for me Pete.
Again Pete I just do not see the link, unless it is the one in blue which states: Microsoft MVP Internet Explorer 2004 - 2011, even though someone else sees it. I will click on the link in #18 and see what I get. If you do not mind, PLEASE send again.
