Special tool or method to Kill memory re

By DynaNIN ·
I vaguely recall that I may have thought that there was an option for removing and loading systray components within NT. I am looking to remove 'Excel' from staying memory resident. It appears that when I macro out of my spreadsheet for some reason it leaves this program component loaded in memory and hence it causes READ ONLY conflicts when it goes to execute the back half of my macro. There must be a way of killing entries in ones task list under Windows '95? maybe its even a freeware or shareware add-on program that must be purchased and used. Any ideas?

By pressing the ctrl+alt+del a window popup appears where you can choose to end task your program running on the backgroubd. I hope this will solve your problem.

too obvious.
I need to target a specific memory resident program without all the keystrokes etc. This must be automated via macro etc. Thanks for the attempt.

Excellent attempt. Is Windows 95 so neaderthallistic that such articles do not include reference to it or Windows 98 or is it just time to upgrade to allow for such features? Amazingly enough most places Dell etc. try to shy away from bundling Windows 2000 with new PC's sold to a "End User" and NT is an overkill for me now. Thanks.
