"kill -f PID" where PID is the Process Identifier.  Get the PID from taskmanager.

Kill is not recognized as an internal or external command, or a program... This is what it says when i try to use the kill command.

Also.. as a bonus question.. when i hit control alt delete and go to task manager, it doesnt show the bar at the top where u can select applications, processes, yatta yatta.. it only shows the proccesses part of it and nothing else.. help?

The kill command is from the Windows 2K resource kit.  Presumed you had the kit from your initial description of the problem.

If you have this the kill -f PID will blow away any process running.
