Launchbox randomly opening Retroarch up til I reset computer

I updated my launchbox to the new one a week or so ago and it worked fine until today where it's now crashing upon opening where it keeps starting retroarch in multiple windows till you have to restart the computer.  No it's not my computer being hacked as everything else is fine! This only occurs with LB and if you go to the emulators in the folder you can run the emulators separately just fine too!  Should I downgrade to an older version/reinstall the newer one?

sooooooo....are you saying that when you load up LB it opens multiple instances of retroarch? if you are, that makes no sense at all. Please clarify.

Does it do this upon opening LB or only when you try to launch a game?

You can try to rerun the latest installer manually in case something got corrupted. Just open your \Updates folder and run the latest installer from there. It will not change any settings. Just make sure you confirm it is installing in the correct folder. Some users do not pay attention and it ends up installing in \Launchbox\Launchbox.
