When applications dont load or freeze up.
The easiest way to fix most problems is usually just the simple act of "rebooting" the computer.

but just in case you dont heres how.
when the computer seems frozen and you seem to have waited longer for it to unfreeze than it takes for bread to toast.. you can try the following.
press and hold the crtl anf alt buttons and double tap the del button.
on older computers using windows 98- 2000 and millenium editions it will usually reboot the computer. also works with older versions.
with xp and vista you will usually fet a differernt screen that will allow you to choose various options.. choose restart.
another way is to click on the start button located on the bottom left of your screen and choose restart option. if the computer is so frozen that nothing works you can press and hold the power button unti lthe computer shuts down.. wait 30 seconds and turn the computer back on..if that doesnt work then you may have to turn of the power switch..but only if you have to..with laptops you will have to take out the battery. when the comp reboots the computer should be unfrozen..if not you will need more help ..just ask us..

icemaker freezes up


Good day,
Common problem on all refrigerators.
It is usually caused by a bad water valve located on the rear bottom of the machine.
What happens, is it fills the ice maker, and is supposed to shut off completely.
If it dribbles instead of shutting off completely the water will start to freeze in the tube, and eventually freeze the tube shut.
