Well if you mean freeze well then I usually just wait 10 minutes or so. If I can't end the program well then since all I've ever had were laptops then well I flip it over and pop out the battery. I usualy wait a minute or so then pop the batttery back in. Turn it on then off and on again then go about whatever I was trying to do beforehand. A few times I'll get pissed as heck but some violent shooting games fixes that nicely.

If it hangs for more than 5 minuets.....I simply shut it off. ;)

However, I haven't had that problem with Vista.......yet. o_0

I will go to the task manager and attempt to shut down the program that I suspect that is causing the hang. If the screen is frozen, then press the power button for a short time and try to off it. Then restart the com and prays that it does not die.

It's simple...first I'll try open the task manager...
if it's cannot be open..then push the magic button (reset button)...if it's still not working>>this one is the tough one...hold the power button for 4 second....then the comp will shut down automatically.

If my computer freezes on a program I use Ctrl+Alt+Del for task manager and end the process.

Wipe off everything on your harddrive and install linux : D

I wait a few minutes to give it a chance (maybe read a book for a bit) then Alt+Ctrl+Delete to kill it, then try again

-ctrl-alt-del, kill tasks/processes, identify the culprit
-if that doesn't help or can't do it, push the power button briefly, wait for shutdown; be patient.
-if it doesn't shut down, wait until there's no hdd activity (led off), then push the reset switch - if you have one - or cut the power.
-then, consider what you made it do, or what it did that caused the hang.
-seek the cause in this order: grounding, network, peripherals, drivers, cd/dvd drives, cpu's cooler, case fan, internal connectors (ide, sata), installed software, the os itself, memory modules and pci cards (remove then reinstall, change slot if possible), power source. try to cure the problem, or else try avoiding that operation. while handling the inner parts, keep yourself grounded.

For a windows user thats easy. Point a large rocket launcher at the Microsoft corporate head quarters and let fly with a barrage.

Really the easiest thing to do is wait a bit (how long is up to you) and then try to kill the process if it does not free up.
If you are lucky enough to be running windows in a Linux environment I'd just kill the windows process and restart

When window's hangs, I usually kill the offending application with taskmanager and go back to what I was doing. Never have I had linux hang or crash.

I 'll press the restart button.If it doesn't work thean I'll press and hold the power switch on the CPU(it's a forced shut down) then turn it on again (sometimes I let the scandisk run th check the system for errors).If the PC hangs a lot, I would recommend to back-up your files to a CD/DVD/blueray or USB drive or another h-disk, etc. then format your PC and reinstall the programs again(If you want to return those back-up files to your PC you may do so but be sure to have it copied to avoid data loss).

Task Manager: If it's only one program that is not responding, I turn it off. Otherwise, I turn the whole Explorer off and see what happens when I turn it back on.

BUT if Task Manager won't even open (that means the computer is really frozen up), I just hit the Restart button~ ^^

Because yes!

Cancel

If it is only one programme, I'll use task manager to close it off. If not, I'll restart.

restart recently
