 ArrayList listExcelProcIDs = new ArrayList();
foreach (System.Diagnostics.Process proc in System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName("EXCEL"))
                {
                    if (!listExcelProcIDs.Contains(proc.Id))
                        proc.Kill();
                }

another solution here: ;)*

Process[] process = Process.GetProcessesByName("Excel");
                for (int i = 0; i < process.GetLength(0); i++)
                {
                    //kills excel process
                    process[i].Kill();
                }
