Q: Firefox won't startup-Error message says "Configuration error"

The rest fo the error message says- "Failed to read configuration file. Please contact system administrator"
I have just R and R'd Firefox and I'm still getting this error message. It won't run now and now I see just how horrible IE is in XP,since I'm forced to use it now....sob
Please Help!!

Preferred Solution: Firefox won't startup-Error message says "Configuration error"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Only an idea!!!!  Not sure but it may be the newer FF may not run well on XP, you could experiment by down loading and older version.
Just checked I may be right check the link below!

This a.m. I was greeted by this System Configuration Utility message popup:

You have used the System Configuration Utility to make changes to the way Windows starts.

The System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the Utility to run every time Windows starts.

Choose the Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes you made using the system Configuration Utility.

Yesterday I used the system configuration utility to untick a program in the Startup menu. Is that why I am getting this message now?

If I follow the directions and select the Normal Startup option, will all the services that I have painstakingly turned off over time start running on startup again? Or will it just load the one application it changed?

Could I restore the registry from a few days ago instead? And, if I do that, will the tracking cookies I finally got rid of by setting them to be deleted at start-up reappear?

Another question I have is, what is the utility used for, if not to make changes? Is it just to look at? What good is it then?

I have recently started to use Mozilla Firefox as my browser, and usually it has been functioning well, but I occasionally get an error message which I don't know how to deal with. It comes about when I click on any of the website icons on my desktop, so as to open that particular one. But quite often I receive the following error message :- "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window," If I then click on "close", it goes to the website that I wanted, but I would just like to know if there is a way I can reach the website without the error message appearing? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in anticipation, that someone will be able to help with my problem as outlined below.

I am using Firefox browser with the AOL dialer, as I recently stopped using the AOL software after changing from AOL dial up to AOL Broadband wireless. I am still using the AOL dialer as I gather, I need this to log on wirelessly with AOL, at least in UK.

When I log onto Firefox, I get a server error message. So I go to Tools > Options >
Connection Settings & then click onto the Direct or Auto connection setting, go back & retry & it allows connection to my homepage, but I have to do this each time I logon to Firefox. IE causes no problems & nor does Opera, but as I use roboform which isn't compatible with Opera I prefer Firefox to IE.

When this first happened I thought Firefox might have been corruupted so removed & reinstalled but same error message? My partners laptop who has no problems logging on is using the same AOL wireless connection although mine is the PC which was connected to wireless/router/modem.

A work around would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

A:Error message upon startup

From auhma.org description --0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
A problem occurred within NTFS.SYS, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus software. I suggest running ChkDsk or ScanDisk as a first step; then disable all file system filters such as virus scanners, firewall software, or backup utilities. Check the file properties of NTFS.SYS to ensure it matches the current OS or SP version. Update all disk, tape backup, CD-ROM, or removable device drivers to the most current versions.

* My first best guess is that either you have bad sectors on your harddrive or your harddrive is failing.

* You could possibly slave your drive in another system and copy your important stuff onto a flash drive and/or burn to a disk. If the other drive has a harddisk diagnostic utility you can test your slave drive by running both S.M.A.R.T. and Long tests. Make sure you do the Long Test. Seagate Tools will work with many harddrives not just their own.

Hi all,

I recently purchased a new computer and started to install internet software (sympatico) before I realized that windows XP takes care of that itself.

I can also hit cancel and the computer boots fine, it is just very annoying to get this message on each startup. How do I get rid of it?

Sometimes when I start my laptop, I will get an error that says 'Error: could not connect to API'. Does anybody know how I can fix this. Thanks.

A:API ERROR message at startup...

API refers to Application Program Interface. Since this only occurs at startup one cause could be a program that has been uninstalled but the 'startup' for the program is still there but it can't find the API. It could also be something you have installed but need to be connected to a certain server or website to run.

I would start\run type msconfig go to the start up tab and look for something you uninstalled recently.

hi, Looks like it would be part of the Intel motherboard programs that should be on a CD that came with the system or the motherboard if you purchased that as an upgrade at some point:
"""Embassy Trust suite uses the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip on the motherboard to give you the latest in security combined with productivity features when protecting documents, securing passwords, generating digital certificates, encrypting email, logging on to Windows, managing security preferences, and more. """ (Quote from the site in link below)


check the site for tech support, maybe just simply reinstalling would fix it but there may be other steps to take first, I dont know...

If the program came installed as part of the Dell system, it may be able to be reinstalled through the Dell Application Recovery utility, check from Start> All Programs> Dell or Dell Application Recovery....

Start up the application recovery thing, look for "Reinstall one application" entry.

Or, it may be an a separate CD for Embassy> part of the motherboard's drivers CD since this is a chip installed on the motherboard you are dealing with. You should check the support documentation for the program and the motherboard>>> you may have the manual for the board, look in that since the chip is part of it.
