[BCAB] Infuriated with JAWS

Can anyone help with the following problem please?

I am towards the beginning of several weeks' worth of running programs 
which each take two or three hours to run.  To check the progress of the 
program that is running I do JAWS+F11 for the system tray where I hear a 
percentage of how far the program has progressed.  This is usually fine 
but this morning, in particular, I can't reach the list of running 
programs within the system tray.  JAWS reports that there is a JAWS 
dialogue currently open but I can't reach it with Alt+Tab.  Also JAWS has 
currently got into sulk mode by starting to read everything two or three 
times and it won't easily be shut up.  Short of rebooting the machine in 
an hour or two, any ideas please.

Thank you.
