How to force quit uncooperative programs on a PC.


Have you ever encountered annoyingly slow or freezing programs that will not quit when you try to close a window? There is a simple keystroke you can use to quit the programs:Ctrl+Alt+Del. This enables you to access the Task Manager. Task Manager keeps track of all the computers processes as well as the CPU usage and physical memory and can be used to monitor and quit unnecessary programs that can slow or freeze your computer.You simply hold all three buttons (in sequence) and you will be redirected to a different screen that gives you options. Look for Task Manager. (note: If you have Windows XP, Task Manager will pop up as a window). There are 6 tabs (Applications, Processes, Services, Performance, Networks and Users). We will only cover the Applications tab.Once you are in Task Manager, click on the applications tab, if it is not already showing. You will see the titles of programs you are using, if any, and its status (running or not responding). If a program is not responding simply highlight it, by clicking on it and clicking on the button at the bottom labeled "End Task".This should force quit the program(s).

Cant get back to desktop


Pretty vague help request "can't get back to desktop". Is the computer booting? Is it that your desktop is blank after it boots with no icons being shown on the desktop? Viruses can hide the desktop and other things on the computer. Maybe your boot process has the problem when it tried to display the desktop. Try hitting the CTRL+ALT+DEL keys. Hold down each key as you hit them and don't take your finger off the keys until after you have pressed the DEL (Delete) Key. This will bring up your Task Manager. In the task manager window click the Processes tab and look for explorer.exe. If you see it click explorer.exe to highlight it then click End Process. After you end the process click FILE at the top left corner of the Task Manager Window and click the option New Task (run). When the Create New Task window opens type: explorer.exe and press OK. This will cause your desktop to reappear with icons if windows had a problem displaying it on the boot process.

Slow to open


Hi,
Is this slow when start up the computer or slow when you open an application?
If slow when start up the computer, the reason is your computer has too much start up programs and services. All these software, services is required to open as start up of the computer, that reduce speed of log on/ start up process. You can speed up by try these steps:
1. Start - Run: type: msconfig and hit enter.
2. The System Configuration Window will appear. Click on Selective Startup. Then go to Start up tab, untick the process that you think it not importance for start up such as Acrobat Reader...ect. 3. Then hit apply and restart your computer. You can disable all of start up services.
If slow when you try to open an application, then the reason is your computer busy work with some other higher piority process. If you think that you need this application open quicker, you can go to Task Manger and End the task you don't want it run or the task that took a lot of CPU resources.

Hope this will hellp
Thanks for reading.

My pc seems to be running slow. t ran the dic


Type CTRL-ALT-DELETE, and click "Task Manager".

The "Performance" tab will show you the CPU-busy percentage
(it will be high when a computer-game is running, or when a computer-virus is running, or when a DEFRAG is running, or when Windows Update is running as a "background" task).

It will also show how much physical RAM is installed,
and how much of that RAM is "free' (currently not being used).

On the 'Processes' tab, you can see which process is using the largest share of the CPU, and the largest amount of RAM. Close any "runaway" process.

Run a virus-scan.

I had to download x-lite for a job at home. i did that then later it told me how to set it up, well it wouldnt work so i deleated it in programs, desktop, and where you go into windows. i tried to...


First open task manager by hitting Ctrl+alt+del at the same time and selecting Task Manager then look for x-lite.exe. If you see this in the process list then click the End Process or End Task button in the lower right hand corner of the Task Manager window. Then try re-installing.

If you're on Vista go to the control panel > Programs and Features
You should be able to find the program there and remove it.

In XP go to control Panel > add remove programs and remove it.

Too Many Processors Running


You can close them manually from the right system tray, click on those you do not need & close them. You can also use the windows task manager to shut down processes you do not need. Hope this helps.

My computer is locked up with the Roxio media manager unable to shut down or cancel out and I cant delete my blackberry install etc??


well when an application is locked and (not responding) try to force it to shut off by going into task manager (rick click on the bar at the bottom of your desktop on any unused area and a menu will show the task manager then select it by clicking on it, or to type ctrl+alt+del and select task manager) and go into applications and select the application an click on end task, and click ok on any other window that comes up thereafter.

if that does not get your application to shut down, try to do it by looking for the process that runs the application and go into the processes tab in task manager and end any process related with the application (you may need to know or guess what process to end as the names sometimes may be acronyms of short versions of the actual name of the program you're running on the system.

Computer slows up


Sounds like something is slowly using up all the memory on the PC. I would use the Task Manager to see what program is doing this. To start the Task Manager, go to Start -> Run and type: taskmgr The Task Manager window will then open. Click on the Processes tab. This will list all the programs and how much memory they are utilizing. Click on the Mem Usage column, and this will sort all the programs by memory useage. If you find one using an unusually large amount of memory, select it and press the End Process button. You will then be asked to confirm you want to stop it. Hit Yes. With this process stopped, see if system performance improves. You can also click on the Performance tab and see what the computer's resource utilization is, such as CPU and Memory utilization.
