Hi,
i want to kill certain running processes completely. i tried to kill the process in VB using TerminateProcess API, but it still leaves the exe in taskmanager. it is capable of killing some single window applications like notepad, but some of the child threads/processes are not getting terminated, for ex. regsvc.exe, which is found to be installed by one of the BHOs to be blocked.to block this BHO i need to terminate regsvc.exe which is not just possible by TerminateProcess.

how can i make it possible?

plz help me come out... i badly need it.

thanks in advance.
