Unable to access program

Each time I try to open the program it tells me it is already running and will not open. I have tried to uninstall, but it says I must close the program first. I am at a loss on how to handle this.

Try pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc to bring up task manager. Then on the top tabs, find the tab that says "Processes" and click it. Find the name of the program you are trying to delete under the Image Name. If you find it, click it and then click "End Process". Click Yes when the message comes up. If you don't find it, check the description (for Vista only).

The other way to do this is to log off and then log back on. If it still won't delete after that, try creating a new Limited User account, and then log onto the new account. Delete the file from that account. Log back on to your regular account and delete the Limited User account. Tada!

Good luck!

Why does this text app keep closing every time I try to open it?


This will often happen when they update an App, they break it! A fix usually comes within a couple of days. Go to the app store and search for the app, do a review and tell them it is broken.

You did the right thing by uninstalling and reinstalling.

Webcam always comes up as in use by another applicatio


Each time this problem comes up, try opening your task manager to see whether any program related to the webcam is running. If there is, you might need to uninstall the program. Try uninstalling and reinstalling you webcam driver too. You might have installed a spurious program that is constantly running the webcam.

Firefox will not open


There is probably something wrong with your installation. Uninstalling firefox does not completely remove all traces unless you use Revo Uninstaller. Download this program, open it, select Firefox and uninstall it. When it asks if you want to delete registry entries or extra files, click select all then delete. Then try installing firefox again.

Office word 2007 installed on vista shuts down when I try to open a file


It could just be a bad install. Try doing a repair via windows 'add/remove hardware' and or a complete uninstall then reinstalling. Would be worth running a registry cleaner and defrag drive before reinstalling. Another thing to try if you haven't already done it is to close down all other programs first, just in case it's a memory issue. Good luck

Doesn't sstart


CLEAN INSTALL needed here.
Try uninstalling again, but this time after the uninstall, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart.
Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both CyberLink and then  PowerProducer, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING PowerProducer
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
