Only thing I have is an image saying

Starting Ethereum node...

If I quit and start it again it says:

Couldn't start an Ethereum node! Are you already running a node

Windows 10 64bit

  • Which version of Mist are your running? 0.4.0 or earlier?

  • 0.4.0 Do I need command line tools?

  • What makes you think you need command line tools? You could of course opt to manage accounts through geth for now.

The current Mist wallet has a number of open issues on Windows. Fixes are in progress but not available as of yet.

Issues that resemble yours:

You can help the developers by either creating a new issue (if your problem is unique, which it might be because my quick scan didn't see issues explicitly involving Starting Ethereum node...) or reporting your case on an existing issue.

You should also provide them with the logs: go to %APPDATA%/Roaming/Mist/ and copy all the *.log files, as suggested by frozeman in the second link. You could also check them out yourself and see if you find anything meaningful.
