Enable Automatically Terminate Hung Programs to terminate hung programs

When programs lock up or stop responding, you are forced to [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Delete] > End Process. This tweak lets Windows automatically shut down hung programs. In the Registry Editor, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Desktop.
You will find a String Value called AutoEndTasks. Double-click on it and change the value to “1”. You can
also set the timeout value by doubleclicking on the WaitToKillAppTimeout String Value and changing its value to the time in milliseconds before Windows kills the task.
