Windows 7: Can't delete MagicTunePremium - it is open somehwere?

[Solved] Can't delete MagicTunePremium - it is open somehwere?

In an effort to calibrate my monitor (Samsung 173p), I had to dl its control application (MagicTune). When I tried to use the app, there were several things that were not available, so I tried to uninstall the app. To uninstall I used the W7 uninstall program. Well, MagicTune no longer appears in the W7 app (nor does it appear in another uninstall app I use, Revo Uninstaller); however, much of the program still appears in the Program Files x86. When trying to simply delete it from PGF x86, I get an dropdown telling me that "The action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program." ...try again. I've taken ownership of the app and have restarted W7, all to no avail. I just can't (don't know how to) find where it is open. Help, please.

Download and install LockHunter, makes it easier to see what is locking the files and to get rid of them.

Thanks, but now I am in big trouble.
I thought that I had Samsung Syncmaster 173p, but actually have 193p. Doubt if they are really different other than one is 17" and the other is 19". Anyway, the file I dl'd was for the 173 (I think). And, although I couldn't uninstall Magictune, as stated above, I dl'd again and tried to install. Well, long story short, my monitor screen won't turn on as it keeps going to sleep. Rebooted, but although the compter signals that it has rebooted (bell), the monitor's screen never lights up other than its saying it is going to sleep. I'm at a loss as what to do now.

BTW, I do have a laptop that is networked with the desktop (problem with desktop/monitor) - both are W7, and I was wondering if I could view the desktop through the laptop - how???

I realize you see nothing now.
Try using the Syncmaster CD that came with the monitor.
If the Autorun will start the CD it may actitvate the monitor. Ask you to select options and reinstall the driver etc.

Revo Uninstaller has a "hunter mode". You can drag and drop a file on to it's icon and it will attempt to uninstall the asscoiated program. Another attempt would be to boot into safe mode and try an uninstall.

I'm not trying to jack the thread but I have never needed to go into safe mode to do anything.
I haven't a clue how to do it.
Did a search on the Tutorial section and found none there.

OP may be curious also.

I found lots of tutorials on using safe mode to do things but not how to get there.

Read the above tutorial. This is what you want to try first.
The screen that comes up is run by the bios or DOS so screen should be visible as in tutorial. This should reset everything back to normal. A System Restore of sorts.


Last Know Good Configuration (advanced)

Starts Windows 7 with the most recent registry and driver configurations that worked successfully. Every time you turn your computer off and Windows 7 shuts down successfully, important system settings are saved in the registry. You can use those settings to start your computer if a problem occurs. For example, if a new driver for your video card is causing problems, or an incorrect registry setting is preventing Windows 7 from starting correctly, you can restart your computer using Last Known Good Configuration.
