Best Answer
I think that I found out the cause....

On multiple computers I noticed that if I am downloading data, and at the same time download a trading object such as the "ETF list" I then start encountering the error. The way to avoid this is obviously not to download objects and install while the Downloader is working.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
