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)
