I was under the impression I'd posted this on DC somewhere already, I can't however find it.

In any case, today I finished rebuilding most of the program from the ground up, fixing bugs and doing some cosmetic changes.

Process Eliminator is something I whipped up after having an issue with a process that wouldn't stay dead; it closes a process and (optionally) renames its file.
It can also be used as a (very limited) batch File Renamer.

The current version (v1 RC2) of Process Eliminator can be found here.

Known Bug: Some processes cannot be both closed and renamed due to them using an 8.3 filename for their process, but not their file.
