Is there a way to kill a running process from the command prompt inside Windows 98/Me. I've tried with some "kill /f"-things that works fine on w2k/xp. These will not work on 98/Me - they ask for some "NT"-file.

It should be something like:

...but supporting Windows 98/Me

The kill.exe utility in the Windows 98 resource kit will do what you want just fine.
It can still be downloaded here:  ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/services/technet/samples/ps/win98/reskit/diagnose/

Just type kill /? for the syntax ... as an example, the following line will kill an instance of Wordpad:

kill /f wordpad.exe

The /f isn't always needed ... but results in a more reliable "kill"

See the Win98 Resource Kit's "kill.exe" and "tlist.exe" at

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/services/technet/samples/ps/win98/reskit/diagnose/

"kill.exe" can terminate a program by name.

"tlist.exe" will list the running processes.

Hope this works for you.
