kill a process in task manager only for a certain user name

Hello experts,

Is there a way to get the user who owns the process in the Process[] collection retrieved by Process.GetProcessByName("ANYNAME")?

I see more than one instance and I only want to kill the process that belongs to a specific user. The server is a terminal server by the way. Thanks in advance,

If u r running Windows XP, simply use
 TASKKILL /S system /U username /P password /FI "IMAGENAME eq note*"

Goto Command Prompt and type "TASKKILL /?" which will kill the exact Process for that user on ur local box or any remote machine, provided the user logged in has Admin privilage on the remote or local box because thats under OS Kernal. :-)

In another OS, i guess just copying the TASKKILL from windows XP to target OS is sufficient. Not 2 sure abt it.

Thanks for the answers guys, looks like Alex pointed out a good link. My application runs on a terminal server (WIN2k3server) and a number of users can log on and run my application. My main concern is the hanging Office and sometimes Adobe applications. I would like to kill those processes(EXCEL.EXE, WINWORD.EXE, etc) from my application but only for the user who is running that application. I will try out Alex's link and see if I can do it even with the users just having limited permissions. Thanks again for all your help!
