Uninstall Problems....help needed

  [DELETED] 16:44 23 Dec 2003

I have just installed a new s/w application ( CD-ROM emulator).I appeared to install OK and is there in the program files...but it will not let me enter it.
I have tried to uninstall it ( so I can reinstall and start again) but it will not let me uninstall because the program is running...and I cannot stop it running because I cannot enter a real 'catch 22')

Has anyone any ideas on how I can remove the installed s/w?

huggyg71....thanks for your input....How do I 'boot in safe mode'.... I know I should know, but I have never done it!!

Restart computer. Keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen appears. Select Safe Mode from the menu that should appear.

Turn machine and press F8 repeatedly.
You will then be given a choice of 6 options.
Choose option number 3 and the machine will then boot into safe mode
Then go to control panel and choose the add/remove program option and the errant program should be listed there
Uninstall then reboot the machine and it *should* no longer appear
