Entourage frozen/blocked

If your running OSX you can kill Entourage from the command line which is much more powerful way of killing a task that won't shut down.
Another way to kill applications is to open a terminal window using the Terminal application. In the window type top -u, making sure that all the characters are lowercase and a space is present between top and -u. A list of the top processes will appear in the window. Identify which process you wish to kill and note the PID or Process ID for that process and then type q. Then type kill -9 followed by a space and the PID. This will almost always kill the process. If the system says you do not have sufficient priviledges, then type sudo kill -9 followed by a space and the PID. SUDO enables you to type in system command and it will prompt you for the system administrator password before executing the command. Type in your password and the system will kill the process.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.but I have no Firefox window open what should i do?

HIt cntrl alt delete to open task manager (or right click on the taskbar) and look at the processes running. You will find Firefox is running although you dont currently have the browser window open. Click on Firefox in the task manager and close it out. Then close the task manager and you'll be able to open Firefox again. This is a common problem with Firefox. It happens in IE as well but for some reason, you can still open IE.
Hope this settles your problem. All the best!
