> Could anybody give me a hint why I can not interrupt the Mathematica 2.2 (i486 PC & Windows 3.1) during a lengthy computation. I've already tried Alt +, and the "hand" in the menu bar without any success. Pushing Alt+ or the mouse button for a while the computer just beep-s but nothing else happens.

I've read the answer of Simon Benninga from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. 
He states that in version 2.2.1, interrupting with Alt+ should work. My
experience with version 2.2.1. for MSDOS is that interrupting still doesn't
work in SOME cases. An updated version might help you, but is not guarantueed.
I think that the problem is intrinsic to MSDOS/WINDOWS 3.1 and not to
