Right click the taskbar and click Task Manager. Go to the processes tab and end task.

I second the suggestion by X.  Windows often will not allow a program to be removed while there is a related process still reflected in Task Manager.  One of the ways around such is to kill the related processes in Task Manager...then uninstall the program.
