Use Task Manager to Close an Application

Have you ever been using a program on your computer and it just locks up on you? Maybe the only way you knew how to fix it was to reboot the computer.

Have you ever been using the computer when suddenly a strange popup makes an appearance on your screen? Do you suspect a virus or other malware? So how can I shut the box without clicking on it?

You can use the task manager to close out unresponsive programs and other popups that you might be a bit leery of - cannot blame you there.

Here is how.

While the process is pretty much the same, the look of the task manager is a little different between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Just remember to visit the Applications tab in Windows 7 and the Processes tab in Windows 8.

Have an awesome day and stay safe online!
