And now, what??

Did something like this ever happen to you?

I was working with Visual Studio 2005 and suddenly it stopped responding. I tried to kill the process with the Task Manager after a while and Task Manager stopped responding, too!!!
Everything else in Windows kept working perfectly with the exception of Visual Studio and Task Manager.

Back to the question in the title... Now What?? If everybody knows that to kill a non responding application you use the task manager, what do you do when task manager doesn't respond? To be true, it had never happen to me before.

So, the next logical step was to try to close the task manager....

and after clicking End Now...

Of course it didn't work.

The scary thing here is that the only application I thought unbreakable in Windows is just another mortal application; but then again... it's Windows, I shouldn't get surprised.

By the way, the solution is to restart the PC. Is there anything that a good restart can't fix?
