Thanks for your response. This machine has 256MB memory. I have run TMG,
FTM, Outlook, IE, all at the same time with no problem. When I
double-clicked the TMG icon, there was no programs running but the ones that
always run in the background. Hopefully this won't happen all the time.

Cynthia, it sounds as though you have many programs open when you start
TMG and not enough memory to handle all of them. Many computer
manufacturers set WIN to open IE, OE and other programs which you don't
need on all the time and perhaps never use. Also starting TMG first
often helps. Reinstalling TMG is not the answer.
What are you system specifications?
