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!

More than likely a problem with the operating system or a program you are running at the same time. But, it could be a problem with the connection interface. Try it in a different computer or port on yours.

Hello marieborja10,
This happens some times when a program is accessing something on the drive. Make sure all files that were opened are closed. Also, make sure any open folders are closed.
If it still fails to eject, it is perfectly safe to pull the USB connector out as long as all programs/files/folders are closed.
Hope this helps!

Unable to open documents saved on my SanDisk


Try using my auto-installer script for the excellent USBDeview+USBIDs using this you can ensure that the USB hub has found the device and created the Virtual CD drive used to run the U3 launcher. I only wrote the installer to make it easier for you all.

With this you can disable/enable install/uninstall the drivers this makes it way easier than using the Windows equivalent.

NOTE: If you have a conflict with the launcher you will probably get either error 1001 or 1010 for a full list of the known problems look here.

When Windows starts up, a number of programs will start automatically. Most of them don't need to start but they do. The more programs that start up, the longer your computer will take to load everything.

The first thing to do is to get rid of all the junk in your computer. Uninstall any program you no longer want.
Clearout all your old temporary internet files.
Do a registry and adware clean.
Get rid of old documents and files, anything you do not need.

To see the programs that start when you boot up:
Click Start
Click Run
Type msconfig
Click OK
When the window opens Click Startup

You will see a vast number of programs that your computer loads each time you boot. You can uncheck a lot of them. Do a google search for startup programs before you uncheck anything. There are some good guides that will tell you what to allow to start and what you don't need. Note any unchecked program will not be deleted or uninstalled and will still work when you want them. You will need to restart your computer if you make any changes in msconfig

I would also suggest you defrag your hard drive.
Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-Syatem Tools-Defragmenter
Follow the instructions.

Do not rule out the possibility that you have a virus or some other spyware program running in the background which slows things down. Check these out too.
