Press ALT CTRL DELETE, it lead to the task manager which shows what prgrtams or files are being run If it varifies the file being run, highlight the the file then press end task.

Than run the file again.

If not, click on My Computer and open up the harddrive Then open Pogram Files and click on the media file delete it from there Then re-install the file from disk You shhould have a media disk.
