When Firefox tries to do auto update at start I get an error message saying update failed, be sure no other Firefox programs are running. Since none are running I am not sure what to look for. What can I do to eliminate this error?

As I start Firefox the automatic update tells me that Firefox will open after updete finishes. I then receive an error message that tells me the update failed. It also says to be sure there are no other versions ov Firefox running. There are no other instances of Firefox running so the error must be generating from some other issue. Need some hints so I can look further. THis happens on two of 4 computers: a desktop running W7 Ultimate and this web book running W7 Home Premium.
