Welcome to the SevenForums raymm. :)

If necessary go into "Task Manager" and force an "End Process." If that doesn't work then attempt a "Restart", and finally if that won't fix the problem, then do a "Force Shutdown" by holding your computers "Power Button" for at least five seconds. From there do a restart and see what happens. Please let us know the out come. :)
