Hi mhamer

This script will do what you are asking.

Line 12 and 16 can be removed as these just pop up to tell which Processes are running and which Process ID will be closed.

sProcToKill = Null

Set oWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")
Set cProcesses = oWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process WHERE Name = 'Notepad.exe'")

For Each oProcess in cProcesses
    sngProcessTime = (CSng(oProcess.KernelModeTime) + CSng(oProcess.UserModeTime)) / 10000000
    If sngProcessTime >= sProcHigh Then
    	sProcHigh = sngProcessTime
    	sProcToKill = oProcess.processid
    End If
    Wscript.Echo oProcess.name & vbTab & oProcess.processid & vbTab & sngProcessTime

If Not IsNull(sProcToKill) Then
	WScript.Echo "Process To Kill - " & sProcToKill
	Set cProcessList = oWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process Where ProcessID = " & sProcToKill)
	For Each oProcess in cProcessList
End If
