Try uninstalling it in safe mode, there are a limited amount of applications running in this mode. While you're there, run your anti virus and malware scans.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Well, you can restart and delete but I find that way too time consuming (My current computer is a scraped peice of junk that takes about 10 minutes to start up)

Well... You could end the process and delete if another process is using the application.


To do this Ctrl+Alt+Del> Task Manager > Processes tab> ragnorak.exe


Im not sure if that is the exact process name it may be installer.exe ...

But good luck, hope this helps =)
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

I think u should download unlocker... This little application is really useful for deleting most items which cannot be deleted because of some process that is still using that thing or another option is killed process msciexe.exe or something like that and disable all startup. Restart and try to delete again.
