Error: Configuration section cannot be created

SDL Trados Studio 2011 was functioning properly just the other day. Today when I tried launching it, it gave me the following error "system.service/Model/services configuration section cannot be created. The machine.config is missing information." It is further suggested to run Service.ModelReg.exe file but it is unclear where to get it from.

I'm just puzzled as to what the issue is and how to fix this. Any help is greatly appreciated. I tried restarting the computer, it did not help. Thank you in advance.

Kindest regards,
