Is there some software that will kill an application that just won't end no matter what you do to it, stop it, kill it...whatever. Task manager doesn't work for this issue.

If so, what is the name of it?

thx

Try using taskkill. Go to Start > Run and type in "cmd".

In command type in "taskkill /F /IM blah.exe" replacing blah.exe with the process(image) name. You can also use tasklist to see what processes are running.

I'm not really sure about jobs, as I don't use them. However I can help you write the batch file. :thumbsup:

Copy/paste the following quote box into a new notepad (not wordpad) file.

@echo off
taskkill /F /IM blah.exe

Save it as end.bat or whatever name you want just make sure to have .bat at the end. Save it as File Type: All Files (not as a text document or it won't work).
