Using ctrl alt del and killing off a program through the gui is painful and takes many tries. Use taskkill /IM notepad.exe from the command prompt to kill off a process. To kill off firefox which is hung for example you would use taskkill /IM firefox.exe There is other other options for this command as well which are easily googled.
