Proc univariate will not stop running. It may have something to do with the changes I made in options. However, not sure what those changes were. Can someone help me reset SAS to its original settings? I'm using version 9.3
The error I get is: PROC UNIVARIATE is currently executing. All subsequently submitted statements will not begin executing until its completion.

Not the friendliest approach but terminate the SAS session if it is taking too long. Settings are unlikely to be involved unless you are accessing output to a network location with slow response.
Before re-running your proc univariate take a look at the dataset with either proc contents or the explorer.
If there are many records and many variables the time is often actually associated with building the results tabless and requested graphs.
Consider if you need all of the variables.
It often helps to post the code of anything submitted causing performance issues as suggestions without details often lead to lots of responses of "I am not using that option". With the submitted code then fewer guesses are involved.
