Cant Kill Process

  [DELETED] 13:39 05 May 2006

Been trying to install Guildwars on my pc a few time recently and when i get to disc changeover the process crashes and i cant kill it. Iv gone to processes in task manager and tryed to kill it from there and tryed kill process tree but i just cant get rid of the darn thing untill reboot! Wots up with this! I dont get any message saying another process is using it either!

that copies all the game files to the hdd (usually just requiring an original cd to run it). if so, try this.

also, have you looked on the manufacturers web site for bugs/fixes, faq's etc?

Have you tried loading in safe mode?

Kinda hard to get bug fixes for it when its all streamed to you after the install :) I aslo managed to get control panel to close but still apear on the desktop covering 80% of my icons lol. I think its time again for the ultimet solution a format and reinstall :) Seem to be a regular part of pc maintainance for me and windoz. Every 2 months is reinstall time but me mac has survived since xmas. Shows which is the better os dont it!

Are you referring to HalfLife2/Steam?
Windows can be a pain, but you shouldn't need to re-install every 2 months

Sorry, I have no experience of Guildwars, the aforementioned Steam works on the same prinicple. Have you disabled AV software while installing? Re-enable immediately it's done of course.
