you cant kill at particular path, but you can either kill all process by name or either by process id (PID) using same tskill command. For more help on that go to command prompt and type tskill and enter key for help.

as asvforce said, u cant kill a process on a specified path, but the following code shows how to kill a task:



Dim objWMIService, objProcess, colProcess
Dim strComputer, strProcessKill
strComputer = "."
strProcessKill = "'calc.exe'"

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcess = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_Process Where Name = " & strProcessKill )
For Each objProcess in colProcess
   objProcess.Terminate()
Next

If you replace "Where Name" by "Where Executablepath" it works according to my requirements.
