Occasionally a certain application you’re using will freeze.  The quick fix is to right click on the taskbar and choose “Start Task Manager.”  By clicking the “Applications” tab you will find a list of all currently  running programs.  In the “Status” column you’ll see the guilty culprit as it will say “Not Responding.”  Simply highlight it and click on the “End Task” button.  That will close the app that stopped working and you’re back in business. — Gary Stanley.
