One of the really cool things about the Mac operating system is the ￼ability to deal with a frozen application without the need to shut down your whole computer. In all the latest versions of the OS you can select the Apple Menu > Force Quit and highlight the frozen application and click the Force Quit button.
In Snow Leopard there is an even quicker way to Force Quit a frozen app. In the Dock click option-click on the application icon and one of your options will be Force Quit. Select it and the application will quit.
