Has anybody had this problem? A friend of mine is running Win(ME). If any application fails to respond he tries the 'End Task' button. This does absolutely nothing except occasionally makes his system hang. Any ideas please.

You will find that on some programs you may need to click on *end Task* two or three times. Just keep the Ctrl/Alt keys held down and repeat click the delete button. A second window will open in the top left of screen, and in this window click *End Task*, that will do it!

Pressing 'End Task' repeatedly just hangs the PC. The mouse is not USB.
Thanks very much for the fast reponse. Do you have any other suggestions?

One of its features it to reduce the Hung Application Timeout so these programs die quicker.
