Managing Windows After an Application Failure

Windows 98 continuously polls applications to see whether they are running and responding. When an application fails to respond, Windows 98 displays a dialog box in which you can click the End Task button to close the application. You lose all changes to data in the application since the last time you saved. Click Cancel to return to the application.

If the application misuses memory or has a fatal error that causes the application to fail, other applications usually are not involved. When an application fails to respond—for example, clicks or keystrokes get no response—press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to display the Close Program dialog box.
