The computer grinds to a slow.  top says that Emacs is taking half of
CPU and Safari is taking the other half.  So it's in a tight loop (and
so is some advertisement on Safari, probably).

I was hoping that ^G would stop anything that emacs does.

GNU Emacs 22.2.1

Are there any signals I can send to make it stop without crashing?


Look at C-h r s quitting If esc esc esc doesn't work try C-] or M-x top-level. If none of these work then you will probably have to kill the Emacs process with the OS.
