UPDATE:  Well I've got some great news.  I uninstalled Spicebird and rebooted and the msg about another instance did not appear.  Then I found another site, not Cnet, and downloaded Spicebird again and Voila! everything is back to normal.  Thanks for your help I appreciate it.  Looking back,  I remember catching myself immediately after I originally deleted it and tried to cancel the deletion.  Perhaps that's what corrupted it and why I kept getting those msgs and why it kept crashing when I tried to open it.  So I guess the motto of this lesson is "let it delete completely, then recreate". Thanks again.

Moe

It's always the best idea to reinstall a program when you have weird issues, error messages, etc. with it that cannot be solved by conventional means :) And no problem, glad that you found a solution to your issue!

UPDATE:  Great news!  Everything is back!  I decided to uninstall Spicebird and that made the "Another instance" msg disappear. Then I found another site, not Cnet, and downloaded Spicebird again and everything came back.  I remember now trying to stop the original deletion when I realized what I did and maybe that corrupted it and why I was getting all those msgs and the crash msg.  Next time I will let it do what it has to do then try and recreate it.  Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
