     The utility first attempts to end the process by posting WM_CLOSE to the main window(s). If it fails or if the application is window-less (i.e.: a NT Service), it then opens the process handle and terminates it by calling TerminateProcess function. Be ware, that this code can be some what dangerous, because it adjusts its own process token to allow debug privilages, which can force even a NT service ran under LOCALSYSTEM account to close (can be handy though). The project and workspace are for MSVC++ 6.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
