    Press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open the Task Manager, In processes tab select the game process, right click on it and select End Process.

    Yeah, it's possible. I don't think it was actually still running but steam somehow 'thinks' it was, so it doesn't let you restart the game. You can try ending Steam process and restart steam instead.
