In Windows operating systems such as Windows 7, Vista and Windows XP it is very common to force kill some process which refuses to shut down and terminate by itself. Other times instead, a particular application doesn’t not respond or has stopped working and needs to be manually killed, so to speak. This quick tutorial will show you how to brute force a process to kill and close itself right away. If you don’t know what I am talking about, you have to know that a Windows process is a program or application instance that is being executed by the software itself in order to work correctly. Processes usually deal with the computer memory, operating system descriptors, computer and user permissions and other deep computer resources and threads. That’s why if a process doesn’t close and end properly you won’t be able to shut the computer or the application down.
