Perhaps your setup.dat configuration file is corrupt.
You will need to locate and remove the setup.dat file. When you start NewsLeecher again, it will reset to default settings.
If you are using 4.0 beta 20 or later, you can hold down F12 when starting the application and it will ask which configuration files you wish to reset.
If using an earlier version, you will need to manually remove the file. You can find the location and explanation of each configuration file at http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6766
If you are using 3.95 beta 1 or later, the setup.dat files are backed up automatically so you can use a previous version. They are stored in the %APPDATA%\NewsLeecher\backups\ directory. Replace your corrupted setup.dat with one of these backups, renaming it properly of course.
If that doesn't resolve the problem, try moving all of the .dat files out of the configuration data directory and run NL again. If there error goes away then it was one of those files. You could move a few of the files back in until you find the corrupt file.
Uninstalling and reinstalling will not remove the configuration files.
