Kill Process

Hi,

I have the following function to kill running process

Problem is process name is case sensitive. How can I make this case insensitive ?

 public bool FindAndKillProcess(string name)
        {
            //here we're going to get a list of all running processes on
            //the computer
            foreach (Process clsProcess in Process.GetProcesses())
            {
                //now we're going to see if any of the running processes
                //match the currently running processes by using the StartsWith Method,
                //this prevents us from incluing the .EXE for the process we're looking for.
                //. Be sure to not
                //add the .exe to the name you provide, i.e: NOTEPAD,
                //not NOTEPAD.EXE or false is always returned even if
                //notepad is running
                MessageBox.Show(clsProcess.ProcessName);
                if (!clsProcess.ProcessName.StartsWith(name)) continue;
                //since we found the proccess we now need to use the
                //Kill Method to kill the process. Remember, if you have
                //the process running more than once, say IE open 4
                //times the loop thr way it is now will close all 4,
                //if you want it to just close the first one it finds
                //then add a return; after the Kill
                clsProcess.Kill();
                //process killed, return true
                return true;
            }
            //process not found, return false
            return false;
        }

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Convert both strings to the same case. You can use ToLower() for example:
if (!clsProcess.ProcessName.ToLower().StartsWith(name.ToLower())) continue;
