KillProcess Automatically Terminate Multiple Process
May 1, 2010 | Filed under Software;
Windows operating system comes with a Task Manager where you can check what process are running, how much memory it takes also also giving you the ability to terminate it. Problem is there are some malwares that are hard to terminate from Task Manager because it spawns two or more process which autoruns whenever it is being killed. For example, malware has 2 process which is process A and process B. When you kill process A, the process B monitors if process is running or not and will auto run it if it is killed. It is impossible to be fast enough to manually kill both process.
With KillProcess application, we can create a kill list which is a list which determines what process that would be auto terminated. Normally if you try to terminate a critical Windows system process using Task Manager, you will get a Unable to Terminate Process window with the error “The operation could not be completed”. However with KillProcess “Vicious mode”, you can quickly and painlessly terminate any process including Windows system ones.
If you encounter any malwares that requires multiple process to be killed instantly, you will need to enable Vicious Mode in the Preferences at General tab. You will first need to create a Kill List, then start adding the process to auto terminate by right clicking on it from the list and select Add to List. Clicking the first button on the bottom left will kill all the process in the kill list. KillProcess is free and compatible with Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008 and 7.
