Press CTRL+ALT+DEL together (once only!) to bring up Task Manager.

On the Applications tab, click on Money Express then click the End Task button.

Did you check under the processes tab in the task manager or just under the applications?

the box that pops up is"Windows installer"It says
"Setup needs to close Microsoft money express and is unable to do so.please close.Any further comment would be helpful.Ihave to go to work now but will look for anything helpful tomorrow.

Thanks,but it did not come up as expected
The message i have is"Windows Installer"
Preparing to Install.
then a popup appears over the top of this "MicrosoftMoney" set up needs to close microsoft money express and is unable to do so. Task manager says only Window installer is running.Any more help will be welcome.I tried to uninstall Money,but can't,for same reason,something still running.

You need to stop it from loading every time you reboot.

Start, Run and type in


and click on OK.

A window will pop-up. Click on the tab called Startup and untick the program. Then click OK.

Reboot your computer.
