Hi All,

I need to run a vbs that checks if process 1 is running then it gives a popup message program is running in the background, do you want to cancel it with a VBYESNO.

If answered NO it kills another process in the task manager. If answered Yes it continues with the script.

If the process 1 is not running, then it skips the VBYESNO part and continues with the script

Please advice, I am a bit lost.

Thanks,
Vicki
