Not to initiate programs

What do you mean it does not want to start programs in general? What happens happens when you click on a program?

If you click on a program and it comes back asking you which program to open it with, then your program file associations have been changed by a virus.

Singer futura ce150: When I try to run my program on my computer it says failed to initiate security....what does that mean?

It means installation was not completed successfully. You need to uninstall Futura, reboot and install it from the beginning. But before that you need to stop the program that disturbs the installation process. It could be antivirus software or something like that, do not forget to disconnect from the internet before stopping antivirus.

My phone keeps say....initial programming needed...and ihave no idea what that means

Dial *228 and press send. Listen for the prompt and press 1 to program your phone. Remain on the call while your phone is programmed (could take up to 2 minutes). Do not hang up until you hear, 'Your phone has been programmed successfully."
If that does not work call 1-800-922-0204

The message the phone is displaying is completely normal, Your carrier is most likely verizon so it is a CDMA network. Meaning your phone needs to be programmed for the first time with the proper MDN (mobile directory number) and the MSID. These numbers enable the phone to connect to the network to make and recieve calls. Every phone for a CDMA network will display this message before it recieves its initial programming with these two numbers.

Initial programming needed.

Call your service provider to have it reprogrammed.
This means maybe someone deleted the basic programing features of your phone like phone number. or the system ID got bumped by a software error. or it could be that the phone just got flashed. i know the code to program the phone but if you don't know about internal programing it will do more damage than good. since it will kill your phone if any wrong settings is applied.
Best bet is to have your service provider tell you the programing code and settings to be changed. because they will be telling you over the phone what to do.
