What kind of process you will kill automatically?
When it is a Windows process, there is possible a service.

You could use a vbscript like the one below.


'Adapted from http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/oct06/hey1004.mspx
arrProcesses = Array("freecell.exe","sol.exe","spider.exe","winmine.exe")
 
strComputer = "."
 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
 
i = 0
 
Set colMonitoredProcesses = objWMIService. ExecNotificationQuery _        
    ("Select * From __InstanceCreationEvent Within 5 Where TargetInstance ISA 'Win32_Process'")
 
Do While i = 0
    Set objLatestProcess = colMonitoredProcesses.NextEvent
    strProcess = LCase(objLatestProcess.TargetInstance.Name)
 
    For Each strName in arrProcesses
        If strName = strProcess Then
            objLatestProcess.TargetInstance.Terminate
        End If
    Next
Loop
