Hi Experts.  On our terminal servers, we often have processes that have hung or not closed properly.   Does anyone know of a way to identify processes that are not live, "owned" or have been running for hours, and a way of killing them?  There are some programs that have known issues on Terminal Server and writing something would save us having to go into the server and kill the processes.  Thanks in advance

To get an array of all the process do this

         ' Get all processes running on the local computer. 
         Dim localAll As Process() = Process.GetProcesses()

Open in new window


The process class has properties, Kill, which kills the process, Responding which indicates if the UI is responding, and starttime, which you can use to work out how long the process has been running.
