I've tried rolling back to 9.2 and still have the same issue. If I uninstall it would I lose all my emulator settings and have to start again or will it save them? Could my theme of been corrupted somehow?

I have never seen that before and have no idea how it could of happened. You could try removing the settings.xml from the Launchbox/Data folder (just move it out for the time being) and see if Launchbox will load. Are you getting any errors at all?

That seems to have fixed it. I was not getting any errors at all but as you advised I moved the settings file and then updated it back to 9.3 and everything seems to be working again. thanks for your help Neil. I'll be able to sleep tonight now😀😀

OK good to know. If you look in your Launchbox/Backups folder you should find copy's of the settings.xml with the date ammended to the file name. You can try and renaming one of them back so it is just called settings.xml and putting that into Launchbox/Data folder. Obviously you would want to use one with a time and date previous to the issue occurring.  

Strange one for sure though and i would be interested in how it happened in the first place.
