Task Manager is the only medium for us, to know which processes and services are running on our personal computers and to terminate processes which we wish not to run on our systems. Every time you install a new software or program the likelihood of an unknown service adding into the processes list in the task manager, is more and all these subsequently eat up your computer’s speed.
No wonder users who even know a bit about these processes and services and how to kill them, are unwilling to get into such trouble of selecting each process manually and then terminating it. Moreover, the process of killing needs to continued for several times in order to remove all those unwanted processes from your list.
Significantly not every process is unwanted and people who are unaware of which processes are to be terminated should not try their hands on this. Most of the times even the task manager doesn’t allows one to kill a particular process and displays “Access Denied” ultimately annoying the user who quite sure about the process and doesn’t like the fact that its running on his/her PC.
With new softwares and programs being developed, targeting at better speed and functionality a small program called KillProcess occupying 1.81 MB of space is available which aims at killing processes with ease and quickness. It has a very user friendly interface with a user count of over 1 Million. The program’s speed depends only on your processor speed and not on operating system or the space you occupy on your hard disk.
