Whatever the problem, Control-Alt-Delete is always the answer! If it should fail, power off for 10 seconds then power back on and problem solved!

No charge for this service call,

whenn the thing quits behaving, i hit ctrl,alt & delete all at the same time. then a little window pops up and you can pick (with the arrow buttons & enter) which task to end. usually it kinda reboots anyway, but it's easier for me to reach the keyboard than the starting button.

Gran, this may sound strange but how are you able to type the message you just posted about your freeze-up"? Did you close out any programs or reboot your computer?

Freeze-ups happen often with Windows. There are a million reasons why and none of them make any sense at all. Typically, you have to restart the program or reboot and the mysterious problem goes away.

Its likely you did nothing wrong. Your computer just had a silicon fart.

I thought about that when I asked the question. Yah, I pulled the plug on the bugger. I thought there might be an answer, guess I'll send this over to ole' Bill and tell him to take the farts out.
Another true story,One time I was in a hotel in Seattle attending a trade show. One morning the elevator opened and the thing was full of men with badges around their neck, and laptops. I had mine with me, couldn't figure why the stares.It seems there was a neeting with Bill that day, they thought for awhile I was one of them.Really had those young pups stumped for awhile.hehehehe

I wouldn't worry about it for now.

You probably just hit one snag in Bill's huge pile of yarn.

If it happens again, post back. I'm going to ask you to explain exactly what was running at the time and what you were doing when it froze. Yep, it gets more technical. We may even get you one of those badges. (grin)
