What exception? Killing a process is killing a process.

Put another way.  When killed via task manager no exception is thrown.  (Also if a program finishing via an execution is normal then you ought to have serious words with your programmers.  Exceptions are thrown when something critically bad and unexpected happens.)

On the other hand, when you end a task (instead of killing the process) from the task manager, you can get CloseReason.TaskManagerClosing in the FormClosing event.
