You can hit [ctrl]+[alt]+[del] and get your task manager started. Whenever something freezes up on me I do this and close out programs that are stuck. If all else fails and you can't even turn off your computer, then just unplug it and start over. It sucks cause my computer is only 1 year old and it is always freezing up... it drives my husband crazy!
