    It is when two or more processes are waiting on each other to release a source.

    Deadlock is a situation that occurs when two or more processes in a system are waiting for each other to finish before they can proceed. Deadlocks most commonly occur in multitasking and client/server environments. Ideally an operating system should be able to resolve this issue but sometimes this the OS is not able to resolve it or avoid it and there is no general solution to avoid such deadlocks.

    Deadlock means whenever two or more processors request the same resource and the system will be in deadlock state until the resources are released.Deadlocks mainly occur when two or more programs are executed by the processor.By the occurrence of deadlocks the performance of the CPU decreases.

    Deadlock is a multiprocessing where many processes share a specific type of mutually exclusive resource known as a software lock or soft lock. To fix this problem you can download fix windows software.
