MSDN Says

SYMPTOMS
A process continues to exist after a call to the TerminateProcess function on that process has successfully returned.

CAUSE
When there is a request to terminate a process through the TerminateProcess function, Windows stops all the user-mode activity of the target process. However, the target process cannot actually exit until all kernel-mode activity specific to that process is complete. This means that the target process continues to exist until all of its threads have left kernel-mode and all pending IO has been canceled.

This situation occurs as the result of a device driver not releasing a thread or not canceling IO. The process continues to exist until the IO completes and all threads in the process are released from kernel mode.

GOOD LUCK

Sometimes you can call CancelIO( handle ).  It is not availble on Win 95.

Good info.  I suggest that you post to Community Support and ask to have your points refunded since you found the answer yourself.  

I recommend that this NOT be deleted, but rather saved as a PAQ.
