Hi,

If you can still move the mouse press Ctrl+Alt and Del and start task manager. In the Applications tab click on the browser you are using and click on end task.


If the computer has completely froze then you will have to perform a forced shutdown. To do this press and hold the on/off button until it turns off.

If you need anymore help please post back.

Good luck.

Verify that you are on EasyWeb Login to our secure financial services site

If you doubt the site - close browser.
Always verify site before log on - 3 things to look for:
1. HTTPS
2. Right click open spot on page - then click view page info - then click tab connection - in that tab look for site verified, Verisign Secure, and 128 bit Encryption.
3. Verify the Look of the page (if you have been to page before you should know how it looks).
