    Kill VLC Media Player

    How do I Kill VLC Media Player. It would not play a disk. It is still on after I click on Quit. I want it completely off.

    Good to see you got it to stop working
    If it happens again, the process number will be different, so you will have to check it again.
    Please mark your thread as solved (in Threads Tools,), thanks!
