    Hello Jimbo,

    You might see if running the program using compatibility mode may help.

    Compatibility Mode - Use in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,

    Try to close it with ALT+F4 - maybe that really closes it. Does on other apps.

    thanks a lot for replying Brink&whs, BUT, alt + f4 does not work, I already tried and tried again the troubleshooter, I get this: Troubleshooter had completed. Issues found: Incompatible program.

    The only option i have is to close the troubleshooter. Please help ;/

    How about using OPTION TWO (scroll down a bit) in the same tutorial I posted above instead?
