KillProcess v.2.43

The KillProcess application can terminate almost any application on an PC running Microsoft Windows, including Windows Services and applications being debugged (but not while at a breakpoint) in a matter of millisecond. This is more powerful than the Windows TaskManager, which also has an delay to wait for applications to "die" gracefully. KillProcess is also free from stupid questions that asks you if you are really sure that you now what you are doing (well there actually is such questions, but you can disable them). The Windows TaskManager also cannot terminate multiple processes at the same time, which is something that KillProcess is really good at! Either have the processes in your kill list, or select them in the process list and "kill" them manually.KillProcess includes a nifty process tracker, which can prevent any process in the system from starting to execute, and thus releasing precious CPU resources to applications that should be running instead. This is great if you for some reason would like to prevent the network administrator from running a nasty virus scan application on your computer while you are making a huge animation or code compilation that consumes a lot of computer resources.How the application worksThe application uses "Kill lists" to specify which processes that should be terminated. It is possible to have several lists on the PC and then select which list the application should use. The application then uses the methods in the PSAPI included in the Microsoft Platform SDKThe kill list contains the full names of the processes to be terminated - or as I prefer to call it - killed.So if you for example want to terminate Microsoft Word swiftly, simply add Winword.exe to your kill list and fire away.The application will kill any process that is included in the kill list,including some services and applications being debugged (which is VERY useful).Each process on the kill list can also be "tagged" by the application. This will make the Kill Process app terminate the undesired application as soon as it spawns. This is done trough continuously polling the PSAPI for a new process list, and compare the new applications against the kill list. The polling time can be defined by the user, in order to tune the usage of the CPU.
