VB.Net - Cancel Long Running Process or Selection User Didn't Want

Last Modified: 2017-04-12
Good Day Experts!

I have a Vb.Net application that our User community uses on a daily basis.  It has a tab control on it with over 25 tabs.  They are interested in being able to cancel a long running process or a process they didn't want to start(even after the "Are you sure?" message boxes.  We would want it to apply for all the tabs so I would only have to code it once instead of on each tab.  

Is there a way to cancel the current running process for the User without knowing what was running?  

Thanks for being patient and understanding,
