Locking in SQL Server

I have put a query in SQL Query Analyzer Select top 17777* from <Table name> It takes lot of time to get the output.I stopped it using stop button in Query analyser. Now that process ID is blocking any other query to be executed on the same table. This does not happen everytime. But I would like to know if someone is facing the same problem.

Check the following:

1) Make sure your table has an clustered key.
2) Use (WITH NOLOCK) to do dirty reads which helps prevent deadlocks

Hope this helped...
