unprotect a process

By wesley.chin ·
There is a process that I want to kill via a batch file, using tskill. The message is that the process is protected and thus inaccessible. I had been able to unprotect the process, but am not able to now. Running XP Home. Any suggestions?

Use PSKill

by IC-IT In reply to unprotect a process

Does tskill work in XP Home? I had forgotten that tskill works the same as taskkill, you have saved me some typing ;-)

I don't understand. Are you saying tskill should work? pskill does not work with XP from the link.

PSkill Should work

by IC-IT In reply to ?

From the link. No exception listed for Home.

PsKill works on NT 4 and higher (including Windows Vista).

I am not sure if tskiil will work I know Home does not have taskkill built-in. It may if you transfer the file to the sys32 directory I have not tried that. Sorta like Msconfig working in W2K?!

Thanks for the reply. I will test it and see what is the final result.
