You can kill a process with the command:

kill Processnumber

In your case, you could type:
kill 1788
to kill the first process. Be sure the process you kill is really the one you want to kill. I'm not sure what you mean when you say "sometimes it hangs". I hope you menn the process and not the system. For more on process control see:

That doesn't do anything. I have to reboot the system in order for the permanant process to get reset. The system is fine, but that process that got locked up.
