KillProcess is a simple tool that will display all the processes currently running on your PC, and let you close down any you like.

This can come in very useful if you find a rogue program starts grabbing too much CPU time, and interfering with the rest of your PC. Task Manager can't always close processes in this situation, but KillProcess applies several different tricks to ensure success - it really can eliminate just about anything.

KillProcess can also scan for processes that you don't want to run, then close them down almost as soon as they appear. And you're able to create Kill Lists of unwanted processes, all of which can then be terminated at a click.

The program is perfect as a troubleshooting tool, quickly eliminating runaway processes that can't be stopped in any other way. But be careful. It can kill everything, even protected Windows system processes, and if you choose the wrong item then your PC may lock up or crash, instantly.

Verdict

KillProcess is a powerful tool, but beware - kill an important system process and you'll also crash Windows.
