If you are running windows XP, hold CTRL+ALT and press DEL on your keyboard. If you are running Vista or Windows 7, select Start TaskMaster after doing CTRL+ATL+DEL.

Once you are in taskmaster, click on processes and make sure setup.exe is nowhere in that list. If it is, click on it and then click on "End Process". Check for any other names of installers you may have used to install your game.

If you can't find anything there, download CCleaner and install it on your system. If you don't want the yahoo toolbar, make sure you deselect it in the installer.

Once CCleaner is installed, go ahead and click on the Tools tab. This will bring up an uninstall window. Try uninstalling The Hobbit there, as this often helps to get rid of pesky programs with non-working uninstallers.

In order to uninstall Windows XP, you will need another Operating system to replace it (such as linux or an updated version of windows) - a computer is useless without some form of operating system.

Once you have that CD or DVD, you will need to boot the computer from that disc. From there, the installation process will complete the uninstall of Windows XP.

To boot from a CD or DVD if it doesn't happen automatically when the disc is in the drive as the computer is turning on, press F12 from the first screen when prompted for 'boot options'.

Sir i can't unistall ask for genuine microsoft software. so plz send me the uninstalisatition process immediately for my windows xp.

You can't uninstall Windows XP, but you can install another version of Windows, which then replaces Windows XP. You can either format your hard disk and then install another operating system or you can keep your XP with the new operating system.

Try going into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, click on the Media Center software, if listed, and see if it gives a choice to Change and/or Repair. You'll probably need your Windows CD if/when it prompts for it.
