Hi,

Try this (won't work on WinNT 4):

uses  tlhelp32;

function KillTask(ExeFileName: string): integer;
const
  PROCESS_TERMINATE=$0001;
var
  ContinueLoop: BOOL;
  FSnapshotHandle: THandle;
  FProcessEntry32: TProcessEntry32;
begin
  result := 0;
  FSnapshotHandle := CreateToolhelp32Snapshot(TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS, 0);
  FProcessEntry32.dwSize := Sizeof(FProcessEntry32);
  ContinueLoop := Process32First(FSnapshotHandle, FProcessEntry32);
  while integer(ContinueLoop) <> 0 do begin
    if (StrIComp(PChar(ExtractFileName(FProcessEntry32.szExeFile)), PChar(ExeFileName)) = 0)
       or (StrIComp(FProcessEntry32.szExeFile, PChar(ExeFileName)) = 0)  then
      Result := Integer(TerminateProcess(OpenProcess(
                        PROCESS_TERMINATE, BOOL(0),
                        FProcessEntry32.th32ProcessID), 0));
    ContinueLoop := Process32Next(FSnapshotHandle, FProcessEntry32);
  end;
  CloseHandle(FSnapshotHandle);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  KillTask('AcroRd32.exe');
end;

Regards, Geo
