Having trouble with some things claiming they're already running

So I can take some video.. screenshots & whatever but I'm thinkin' about where to start so I'll just dive into it Biggrin

So throughout restarts & what not I go to run my PortableApps launcher & when I run it.. it opens but it also says PortableApps Launcher is already running..

So I click Okay & there it will be sitting down on my taskbar running & what not.. kinda weird but okay great it runs Smile

That's the minor inconvenience I'd like to put an end to..

The larger issue is I'll attempt to run some of my applications & will be told: Another instance of xxx is starting Please wait for it to start before launching it again.

And those applications are not running & do not start.. the only way to get them to start is to run the app as Admin.. then it starts up no errors no messages all is well.

It doesn't happen to every app either like Google Chrome fires right up no arguments..

Notepad++ on the other hand for 1 example.. does that every time.. have to run as admin to use it..

I am using a Samsung 128 GB Flash Drive.
