control-C not responding, short example program

If you put this in a module and test it:

def ForLoopTest (NumLoops) :
    for Year in range (1,NumLoops) :
        for Century in range (1,NumLoops) :
            Months = Year*12

you'll find that ForLoopTest (10000) will apparently
halt 500Mhz Windows 98 machine. It simply does not
respond to control-C. Is there a way of doing this
or do I just have to live with it?
