Possibly recover from a freeze without a reboot

Most people won't need to get the pid's, but can just use killall. For example to kill the Finder, do
killall -9 Finder
This could cause trouble on a multi user machine, so be careful if other people are logged in. On the other hand if your desktop is frozen, odds are all other processes are frozen too...
