If the program can not be terminated normally or the system hangs up, it is necessary to end the program by force.
Please refer to the following steps.
When the program is terminated by force, you may lose any unsaved data in the program.
Furthermore, if the program hangs frequently after program and other equipments are installed, it might be caused by these newly installed items.
Please make sure whether the program and other equipments used are compatible with VAIO.
