Stopping unresponsive programs in Ubuntu

This is a simple problem,with a simple solution. Which I will forget. Hence the post.

ps aux | grep nameofprogram

This will list all programs running that include nameofprogram, as well as their program ids (pid)

kill -9 programid

Stops the program.

Simple really.
