Controlling Windows Programs from the Command Line

Hi,

I've done some searching around but couldn't find anything so I'm not sure if this is possible.

I would like to be able to view and stop running programs from the command line. Any and all programs running in the GUI like Outlook, Art Programs etc.

Ultimately this would be done through SSH to a Linux Server then Telnet the Windows 2000 Server and close any running programs.

Also when I have a telnet session open on the Windows server and try to use the edit function I can type in the window and see the menu options at the top but I'm unable to use it properly and save it, is there any way around this?

tlist.exe - Lists processes

Nice one, I found some more info and installed them from the cd, never thought to install the 'support tools' ;-) I'll give you some points for that but I'd like to know how to use the edit function or another alternative to write batch files through Telnet.
