To remove orphaned child processes, use the kill command from the resource kit:
kill process name or id
-or-
kill -f process name or id
To obtain a list of processes and process IDs, use the Task Manager or the TLIST utility from the Resource Kit.

Gimme a few minutes and I'll get the link to the resource kit download....

well ,  the whole story.
an sql server should report some web servers that it
has started and they can reconnect to it.
it is done by sending from the sql server a system command "iexplore.exe http://..." this url orders
a specific web server to connect. the sql server procedure that execute this never stops until the iexplore.exe is killed. i'm looking for a command
to kill the iexplore.exe and no problem i have only one.
any other suggestions to solve the problem are welcome.
i simply want to solve it in an elegant way without using any .exe to do the work.

OK-here are some possible utilities to use but if you want something that is NOT an exe to kill a preocess on a remote machine I think you are maybe wanting the impossible. Unless of course you write a program that will kill an IE process after a trigger has been met(like a time period or something- I'm not a programmer so you'll have to ask one if it's feasable), and if you don't want an exe then make it a .dll, but no matter what you call it it IS an exe ...OR you can look into these two programs,
