I have a program occupying some of my ports.
I know its PID from using netstat.
How do I stop / remove / kill this program?

Download PSKill form the Microsoft Sysinternals site (it's free)
Unzip it to windows or windows\system32

Pskill <<pid or program name>> [enter]

If you use the name, all instances of that program will be killed.
You will need to accept the EULA when you first use the program
