Thawing frozen programs

If a program crashes, the best way to solve the problem with minimal disruption is by pressing [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] to start the Windows Task Manager. A list of all programs running on your computer will now be displayed. If any of these are listed as not responding, you can click this program to select it and click End Task to close it without affecting any of your other programs running.

On starting hp pavilion m7680y. I get: AOL error:


Open the Windows Task Manager (in WinXP) by pressing and holding down CTRL-ALT-DEL. In the Applications tab, highlight each program and click the End Task button. Once the Applications tab is empty, close the Windows Task Manager. Then, launch AOL again. (If you’re using an earlier OS, such as Windows 98, press CTRL-ALT-DEL to open the Close Program window, and close every program except Explorer and Systray.)
