Minion won't open

I realize it's a 3rd party program. Just looking to see if anybody has any advice on how to get it working again.

It worked fine for the last year plus. All of a sudden in the last week or so, it no longer opens when I try to run the program. No icon in tray. I tried to update it from the minion site but it says it's running. Task Manager shows it to be not running. Unistalled it. Folders remain in the /user/username/appdata folder. Tried to delete the old folders after unistalling the program. Won't let them be deleted because it says a program is using them.

Download the app again and reinstall as Minion2...

FFS make a forum post...
help plz.

    This happens to me a lot. I run it as administrator and it opens.

    i had this happen a lot off and on when i first started using it, then it hadn't done it at all for quite a while. however recently it started doing it again, prolly over the last couple weeks or so...my guess is some recent conflict between windows & minion was introduced & hard to say from which side...i'm gonna set it to run as admin & see if that makes a difference

    I'm afraid that running as administrator did not resolve the issue that sometimes minion does not open for me. It does seem to open again after restarting the pc, but i haven't yet found a better solution... any other thoughts?
