    When you receive that message what it really means is to close programs that
    you are currently running while you install the program. In other words
    don't multi-task while you are installing an application. There really is no
    need to shutdown any services however you might want to right click icons
    located in the Systray (next to the clock) and then click their disable or
    exit commands. If you use any apps that dump Temp files on shutdown you
    should ensure that they aren't running before you attempt an installation as
    some installer write files to the Temp folder and when you reboot the
    installation continues. If the Temp folder is cleaned on shutdown then
    installation won't proceed.

    Same as in Windows 98---ctrl-alt-delete, then end task on each
    one.
