I am looking for something that will kill all non microsoft related processes in one click- I guess this would be something similar to what Combofix does at one point in its scan I know it halts all processes. If something like this doesn't exist someone should figure out how to make something like this it would be very useful almost like having a safe mode in regular boot.

Task Manager is quick.

I can't see the need to create a program,like you are suggesting.

I agree with jdbaker82... it think it would be helpful for starters.Plus can't actually rely on task manager because of confusing file names a couple of viruses do make svchost.exe and explorer.exe also so it gets pretty confusing

Ever tried to use task manager on an infected computer or just a computer using Norton/Mcafee or AVG? Good luck with that one they pop right back up even if you end process trees over and over and over and over.... Honestly an app or utility that could do this would be ultra useful for anyone in the field of removing spyware/viruses or just cleaning up customers computers.

Thanks I do use this but it is limited in killing stupid processes like Norton/AVG/Mcafee etc that slow computers down so bad you cant even begin to install a program like MBAM or Ccleaner :thumbsup:

you could make a batch file and use "taskkill <appname or process ID>"

There's no place like 127.0.0.1
There are 10 types of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those who can't.
