Windows 7 (x64) Pidgin Error - Another Instance is Already Running.

  A normal Pidgin Instance will eventually not show the Pidgin IM icon in
System Tray or Taskbar.
The only way to tell Pidgin is running is to run Task Manager which shows
"Pidgin.exe *32".
However, I cannot invoke the Buddy list this way and If I double-click
Pidgin.exe, it says:

"Another Instance is already running"

I am running version Pidgin 2.10.7 (libpurple 2.10.7)

Any help is appreciated.
