Can it be done?  I've tried stopping and starting the web server service, 
and killing the process in Task Manager, with no luck.

To date, rebooting is my only useful weapon.

Aside from not writing programs with infinite loops, does anyone have any 
defensive coding strategies that would alleviate the problem?
