… instead I get an error message that my "side-by-side configuration is incorrect." No idea what it means. What is the easiest way to fix or replace? Thanks in advance!

You could try this:

Clean install of the Secure Browser:
Maybe it's time for a clean install of the Secure Browser
Download the installer from here, https://www.avast.com/en-us/secure-browser (https://www.avast.com/en-us/secure-browser)
Download the Secure Browser Removal tool from here, https://download.avastbrowser.com/avast_secure_browser_uninstall.exe (https://download.avastbrowser.com/avast_secure_browser_uninstall.exe)

Save your Bookmarks via the Book Marks Manager if you have custom bookmarks so you can import them when you re-install.
Uninstall Secure Browser via Programs and Features - Reboot
Run the removal tool, reboot, run the installer import your favorites if you saved them.
