A program or software can stop responding due to several reasons including hardware conflicts, lack of resources or bugs in the software or more reasons. Generally the approach taken to kill/close the processes that are not responding is to go to task manager and “End Task” the frozen app. But if this happens frequently, then there are some tools to do this job in a better way.
Windows Task Manager is a task manager application included with Microsoft Windows NT family of operating systems that provides detailed information about computer performance and running applications, processes and CPU usage, commit charge and memory information, network activity and statistics, logged-in users, and system services. The Task Manager can also be used to set process priorities, processor affinity, forcibly terminate processes, and shut down, restart, hibernate or log off from Windows. The task list is capable of listing currently running processes and killing them, or creating a new process.

Viruses, Malwares and Adwares are never ending problems with the Windows Operating System. You might have any powerful Antivirus security solution or Antivirus program but still you can not be sure of your PC to be safe and clean from infections because viruses and malwares propagate daily and new come even fast. You can monitor and destroy viruses right from the task manager if you know the right trick.
