Digital key chain and have uploaded the picturesoftware still up
Right click your Task Bar and left click Task Manager.Click Applications and what ever is running will be displayed.At the bottom, center, is CPU usage.Check it for what percent of the CPU is working.If it's 100% then you need to find which program is robbing all the resources.Low RAM installed is the usual reason,a computer simply can't run on the small amount supplied as purchased.Most come with only 512 mb,a simple scan with your virus scanner will virtually bring you down to a crawl.
Back to your problem,you can click on the program once and hit the end program button,this will terminate the the download and give you back your computer.You can always go to "process" in the task manager and double click CPU,this will tell you exactly what is running and how much of the memory it's using.Again you can click that process once and then end the process.But Ram Memory is the main cause for slow or Locked Up computers.Click "my computer",then right click your Drive,then click "properties".At the bottom of the page is RAM,that's what you have to work with.Most computers don't come with even 1GB of RAM,you need at least that much to be able to everyday tasks.
