Hey, i'm trying to uninstall a program, and windows is telling me that another user is logged on, and that it won't uninstall properly if they're logged in, anyway can i log that user out without having their password, so I can uninstall this program?

You should be able to log them off by using Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del), switching to the Users tab, highlighting the user that you want to log off and then select Log Off from the buttons at the bottom of the screen.

My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)
FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.

If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.
If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.
