Have you noticed that Process Hacker has been updated about 3 times in the past few weeks? I wonder why. Any way, the latest version is Process Hacker 2.2 dated 9 Aug 2010 at File Forum. Or get it from its home page HERE. PH is a task manager -- much more powerful than Window's own Task Manager. It requires no installation. Just unzip it to a folder & run it. One of PH's features is its "Terminator". If you want to kill a process and all else fails, PH can and WILL kill the bugger. It has a whole laundry list of killer techniques, as shown in the screenie below . . . Some of PH's related capabilities... + Powerful control over all processes, even processes protected by rootkits or security software. PH's kernel-mode driver has unique abilities which allow it to terminate, suspend and resume a wide spectrum of processes and threads, including software like IceSword, Avast!, AVG, COMODO Internet Security, etc. + Able to find & terminate many types of hidden processes, including processes hidden by simple rootkits such as Hacker Defender and FU. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NOTE: I am not responsible for any problems that may result from following my advice.
