Have you just tried to just using the KILL with the PID that you get from the task manager

"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?

Task Manager Menu Bar and Tabs Are Not Visible in Windows XP


The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional

This article was previously published under Q314227
For a Microsoft Windows 2000 version of this article, see 193050.

The menu bar and tabs may not be visible in Task Manager.

This behavior may occur if Task Manager is running in Tiny Footprint mode. If you double-click the empty space in the border around the tabs, Task Manager switches to this mode.

To switch Task Manager to its typical display mode, double-click the top border of the window.

When Task Manager is running in Tiny Footprint mode, you can resize the window.

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.
