is an advanced process-killing tool developed by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell of Sysinternals. It allows users to quickly and easily kill any process running on their machine, including those which cannot be terminated through the Windows Task Manager. It is a powerful tool that can be used to terminate malicious processes, speed up system performance, and free up system resources.
PsKill allows users to terminate processes on local or remote computers, providing a quick and effective way to stop unwanted or malicious processes.
• Kill any process: PsKill can terminate any process running on a machine, including those that cannot be terminated through the Windows Task Manager.
• Define process name: PsKill allows users to specify the exact name of the process they want to terminate. This can be useful for terminating malicious processes that are hidden or have changed their name.
• List processes: PsKill can list all processes running on the machine, including the executable name, process ID, and other information.
• Kill multiple processes: PsKill can terminate multiple processes at once, making it easy to speed up system performance and free up resources.
• Specify user name: PsKill allows users to specify the exact user name and password of the process they want to terminate. This is useful for killing processes that are running under a different user account.
• Fetch and kill: PsKill can fetch and kill processes remotely, making it easy to kill processes on other machines.
• Kill by process ID: PsKill can terminate a process by its process ID, making it easy to find and kill a process that is causing a problem.
• Kill tree: PsKill can terminate an entire process tree, making it easy to kill all processes associated with a particular application.
• Logging: PsKill can log all processes that it has terminated, making it easy to keep track of which processes have been killed.
• Command-line interface: PsKill can be used from the command-line, making it easy to automate the process of killing processes.
• System tray: PsKill can also be used from the system tray, making it easy to access the program quickly.
• Detailed information: PsKill provides detailed information about each process that it terminates, making it easy to identify the cause of a problem.
• Kill privileged processes: PsKill can terminate processes that are running with elevated privileges, making it easy to terminate processes that are otherwise difficult to kill.
