MacBook Pro will not FORCE QUIT

My MacBook Pro, now 3 1/2 yrs. old, crashed. I was able to get it up and running but it no longer responds at all when I try to force quit (Safari often "spins out"/beachballs and I have to power off and restart. Any suggestions?

Open AppleScript Editor and create a new script, then type the following in:

Code:
set textReturned to the text returned of (display dialog "What Application would you like to quit?" default answer "")
do shell script "killall " & textReturned
Then add that to your dock and use that instead of cmd-opt-esc
