I will kill thee a 150 ways...freely
« on: June 17, 2007, 04:00:24 AM »
Claus Valca provides a comprehensive list of process-killer software that is second to none on his Grand Stream Dreams tips blog when you absolutely, positively must unlock that file.

[attach madgirlwithswords.jpg][/attach]

He breaks them down into a progression of categories:
  • Easy and Good
  • Bit More Complex
  • Best left for the Pros
  • Not Exactly Related...but good to have handy
  • Boot from another Windows or Windows-Like OS
  • Hire a Mercenary

Go. Read. Now!

Claus's list illustrates how many software titles there are even in obscure categories. Once you start digging, you're often amazed at how much is out there.

I use Unlocker a lot, myself - it's a great, easy-to-use utility :up:.

Thanks for the article, Claus and the referral, zridling!

Not the same, but related, I use Process Tamer to detect processes gone awry and terminate them.

This is my killer from Orange Lamp Software Solutions.
The software's icon is a dynamite stick and when you kill an APP,
the dynamite sound explodes! Ahhh, what satisfaction when I hear it!

Description from website:

KillProcess is an application assassin of the extreme kind. It can terminate almost any process on a Windows machine, including any service and process running in the system. Even protected Microsoft system processes can be terminated. All of this can be done in the matter of milliseconds.

The speed that KillProcess can kill your applications with is determined by your computer speed and is not restricted by any other settings within the OS itself. KillProcess is way more powerful than the Task Manager in other terms than speed. It can kill multiple processes, either by multi-select or by clever use of “kill lists”. Using these techniques it is possible to “batch” terminate processes, quickly and swiftly, with a click of a button.

KillProcess can also scan the running processes on the computer, and kill them on sight, much like an anti-spyware application would. In KillProcess however you are in charge of which applications should be allowed to run or not – and that applies to the computer as long as you say so.

Thanks, Zaine. Your post (and subsequent comments) highlight how many options there are out there in ANY software category. The number of times I've spent in haste and repented in leisure (because I've found better, often free, solutions after having parted with my cash) is C-R-A-Z-Y.

Kill Process looks interesting, doublewitt, thanks for sharing that  :Thmbsup:

That, and how many people need to kill processes in miscellaneous ways :)
