Can't kill porgram

Why is it I can't kill a locked program??

I go to close it and it just sits there..

If I going to close it again it tells me it debuging it!!

What is it debuging it???

Once it has kill it, I lost my sounds..

Short of reboot (hit the reset button) is they anyway to get the sound back??

Note I can't just relog on, as it locks up when I go to...

Dark, what program are you trying to kill and how are you trying to kill it?

Also, do you have the debugging service running?

dark shadow 2000,

your first line asked why you can't kill, you didn't mention whether you used 'kill.exe' or just end task.

so I asked you whether you used kill ?

Anyway, debugging is due the fact by default(assuming W2K here) the script debugger is installed.

if you don't want it and most servers don't need it, remove it by accessing it from add/remove programmes.

more info as per dew assocites request would be helpful for finding a solution for you.

The porgram is called Pal Talk  www.paltalk.com

It's a beta verion, that I'm testing for them...

I like to get an error msg (like in win98)  so I can forward it to them..
But all it is doing is locking up.

As for debugging serice, I don't know.
Does 2000 come with any.

Like I told you in the other question, I just installed 2000.

To: pssiew

I hit the X to close the window and it ask me to end progam
The 2nd time I did it told me I it was debuging it..

Where is this kill.exe??

Anyway, debugging is due the fact by default(assuming W2K here) the script debugger is installed.  If you don't want it and most servers don't need it, remove it by accessing it from add/remove programmes.

OK the only thing install under windows components is

Indexing service (whatever that is)

Kill.exe is one of the files installed when you run Setup.exe from the Support\Tools folder on the Windows 2000 CD-ROM.

OK the only perfnet I got is a dll file in my system32 dir..

Is it stuffed??  Should I replace it (is so how (no sfc))

Or is pal talk just using it wrong??

dark_shadow_2000Author Commented:
OK if I use this kill.exe thing will it kill the program in a way that will not kill my sound??
0
 
dew_associatesCommented:
I have no clue about whether paltalk is using it correctly or not. If it's a protected file (one belonging to windows) then windows wouldn't allow it to be replaced. If you need to run sfc, you run it as sfc /scannow.

dew_associatesCommented:
It should unless paltalk is somehow interferring with your setup. If that's happening, you might want to tell them to change the way it uses sound as no one would approve of this.

OK I'm running sfc /scannow now and will install and try kill.exe the next time pal talk locks on me..  I'll let you know how it goes.. thanks
