When that happens, everything slows to a crawl and I can't do anything except lean on the shut-down button. There MUST be a better way to deal with that! What is it? Mary Dear Mary Dear Mary Hit CTRL SHIFT ESC That brings up the Task Manager. Sort it by memory usage, biggest on top. Most likely the biggest is FireFox or Chrome. Highlight the worst, and hit the END PROCESS button. Probably nothing happens for a while. Just be patient. After a while it will ask you if you really want to end that process. Click on YES. Then go after the next one. As you kill the worst ones, the actions will get faster and faster. After a while your computer speeds up to the speed, that you expect and demand. Generally, anything that takes over 200 MB of RAM is barking too loud and needs to be shut down. Have FUN!
