You haven't described the situation clearly enough to tell. The rule in Chess is that a King may not move into check. If a King is able to move out of check by capturing the enemy Queen, then it should be able to do so.

I play chess on a computer program called 'WorldChessNetwork' and in the program it does now allow the king to capture a queen once put into check be said queen even if capturing the queen is the only way to get out of check, is this a real rule or a flaw of the program?

I thought there would be another fool's mate. (queen f3- bishop c4) for white.

You can force him to move the piece. It's still up to him to choose any legal move with it.

can you force a player to make a stale mate if your playing 'touch move' and he touches the piece?
