  1. Batch kill all processes with the same name


    I tried the apps on this site but it doesn't work as it says. For instance, I have 50 Chrome.exe processes. I don't want to tick them 1 by 1 to kill it. As long as it's named Chrome.exe, I want to kill them all. How can I do it in 1 swop? 6 Ways to Kill Multiple Windows Processes at Once • Raymond.CC

  2. Non-existent process needs killing!

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    Follow the steps below and check if it helps.

    I would like to inform you that, sometimes task manager doesn't kill the process. It's also possible to kill processes from command line with
    'taskkill'.

    taskkill /im process-name /f
    taskkill /pid process-id /f


    This can be done by clicking Windows logo+x and selecting Command prompt (admin).

    if issue persist, I suggest you to boot in safe mode and check if that helps.

    Check the link below to boot in safe mode:

    Hope this helps. Get back to us for further assistance.

    Auto-kill a process


    As I said, a trivial Autohotkey script - a permanent loop
    loop {
    If process exists - kill it
    sleep n
    }

    (very roughly)

    Batch kill all processes with the same name

    Auto-kill a process


    Appreciate the suggestion. I use a .bat file here to do essentially what you describe, but my aim is to automate the process - no user intervention. A specified process opens; it spots and kills it. Closest that I have seen is an app that claims to do this on a schedule.
