Both computers are operating Windows XP Pro

Computer 1:
IP: 192.168.1.60
Workgroup: MSHOME
Computer Name: Doodmon
XP user: Alex

Computer 2:
IP: 192.168.1.61
Workgroup: MSHOME
Computer Name: Doodpoop
XP user: Valerie

If I am trying to close internet explorer on Doodpoop from Doodmon how would I use taskkill to do this exactly?... (just to be sure I am using the command correctly)

ok... it's workin... but is there a way to do it if the Administrative user doesn't have a password on the computer?... because all i had to do was password the computer to access it (w0rd :-P )

also... is there a way to execute (like start a program, instead of kill it) a program remotely using a similar dos utility to taskkill?
