Kill processes using TaskKiller
Your PC is infected. Damn it.
You can’t even launch an Anti Virus app to clean it. Task Bar and Regedit is disabled.
“Ohh god! It’s time to format, yet again. Wish there was an app which can terminate the virus”, you keep murmuring and swearing at the Virus.
Looking for such app? Welcome, Task Killer. 🙂
Why would you need it?
Because captain, these days viruses are spreading by all means that you could think of. Websites, USB Drives, LAN, Softwares, Pre-Installed Virus HDD… you name it, they spread thus.
The Task Bar & Regedit is disabled so that you can’t terminate the virus (pretty clever naa?)
This is where our hero, Task Killer come into picture. He terminates the process before you clean your system with an Anti Virus/Anti Spyware.
This nifty app can do much more than, look in the list at the end of this post.
How Task Killer works
After the software is installed and launched, it sits in the status bar. On clicking it, it shows two items – ‘Processes’ & ‘Windows’. In case you want to boot a windows/Process you can select the corresponding item.
You’ve a Virus (SSVICHOST.EXE) and want to terminate it. Simply click on the
tab and it’s booted.
Note the memory utilization, Green/Normal colour to indicate mandatory/user
Still looking for Reasons to Install?
1. Kill processes easily when your system is infected. (The single most reason,
I’ve installed it)
2. Kill Windows/processes which are not responding.
3. Start/stop Windows services.
4. Applications memory usage control.
5. “Smart Kill” mode – more safe mode to kill program than Windows Task
6. Freeware and uses minimum system resources.
Think of this – this app will terminate process like Mac OS X. The second you command it to terminate, it’ll shut the process!
