Does anyone know if there a tool that will stop processes from running? What I want to do is have this tool running and tell it some processes that I don't want to run at that time and it will stop them as they start. I figure this should be useful for uninstalling malware off peoples machines that want to keep starting IE and whatnot. Thanks in advance and sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

 

 

EDIT please delete this post, I have found somehting that will work.

I am reasonably sure such a useful tool doesn't exist - it would make life too easy !

 

You can find a list of services running on your computer under computer management - Start/Computer (right click)/Manage/Services/Services - and you can control which services start automatically from here. But if malware either doesn't show up in this list, or calls itself something essential for the running of the computer, what do you do ?  That's where the sweat and grief comes in.

Well I was talking about the processes that are running at any given moment not the services on the machine. You can hit ctrl+shift+esc and get the taskmanager and list the processes and kill them one at a time from there, I just thought it would be useful to have a filter on that basically. I found something that works but you have to smack a key. I will probably have to get coding on something like this later just don't have the time right now.

These are tools to investigate running processes, programs that run at startup, services and gather additional information to identify them or resolve problems:
