    When I turn on my pc, my screen shows the following error message: "TWC Desktop error-unable to initialize page."
    Even though I've downloaded the desktop weather channel, it does not automatically appear in my taskbar as it should, because of the error message.
    What can I do?

    Hi and welcome

    How about uninstalling, then reinstalling the program?

    I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. Still reads the same message.

    What version of TWC are you using?

    And what browser are you using? IE8? Firefox?

    Since uninstalling did not work, you may need to download a different version to work with IE8, or if you can configure it to use Firefox instead.

    Yes, the latest Firefox. I think I'll take your advice and download the earlier version of TWC. There was no desktop error until I downloaded the latest version. Thanks for your help.
