Close all of your programs

You need to shut down everything else before installing major programs

  1. If you are on a Windows system, click the X in the corner of each program.
  2. If you are on a Linux system, type kill -9 [PID] for each of your programs.
    You might want to save your data first.
  3. If you are on a Macintosh, you will have to ask someone else. I have a wonderful little iPod, but that is the limit of my experience with Apple products.
