    When i tried to open Risk of Rain, it suddenly crashed with a black screen. When i tried to reopen it, it said that the game was already open. I opened Task Manager and tried to shut the process down, but it said that i didn't have the permission to do so. I restarted the pc countless times and even tried to kill the process with the /taskkill command, but nothing is working, the process simply restarts every time i use the pc.
    The real problem is that Steam thinks i am playing that game, so when i try to open a game two things happen:
    1) It says i can't open a game because Risk of Rain is open;
    2) or i have problem go on multiplayer on other games.
    Can someone help me?

      I can't say I've ever heard of Risk of Rain somehow auto-starting on a full restart/shutdown, but if that's what's happening, Safe Mode might be the be best way to stop it. Booting the computer in Safe Mode should start it up with only necessary drivers/programs running, after which (I would hope) restarting the computer normally should kill the process.
