    ALL Applications WONT run?!?

    Hello (again)...

    Today I want to play Magicka but i cant run the game.. ( No debugging and crashing )
    When I look in Windows Task Manager, the Magicka task is in the "Background processes" tab.

    Then I can run only:

    Internet Explorer.
    Windows TM.
    Thats alll....

    try to run it in compatibility mode for XP or Windows 7. if that doesn't work, you can wait for the Consumer Preview and try running magicka in it.
