Logitech Quickcam and I-tunes: both these applications seem impossible to end once they are running. (QuickCam icon in the bar doesn't have the function and then when trying to close in the task manager, there are at least three applications that one must find to end).

Can anyone suggest a method to kill all the related applications that don't have an obvious kill switch?

Thanks

You could use www.sysinternals.com "pskil", and write a batch file to kill the processes. A bit crude, but should work just fine. Alternatively, if you annoyed with the fact that batch files pop-up a console window, it should be equally easy to do in one of the scripting languages like AutoIt or AutoHotKey.
