windows software Auto Kill Any Process has been designed to batch kill running processes in Windows. Why would someone want to do that? There are actually a few reasons where this functionality might come in handy. Think about launching programs that benefit from every additional Megabyte of computer memory and cpu power. Some gamers for instance like to disable and kill as many processes before they start their gaming sessions. It might also come in handy to kill startup processes if they cannot be removed (for whatever reason).

The software program works with a so called hitlist that is configured in the program's settings. The hitlist basically contains names of processes that the user wants to include in the kill command. New processes can be added from the list of running processes that are displayed in an extra tab in the program or by entering the name of the process manually in a comma separated list in the interface or the hitlist.txt file directly.

All it takes to kill all processes that are listed in the hit list is to double-click the program icon of Auto Kill Any Process. This is a manual process and users who want to automate it need to use different applications like Kill Process (see: Batch Kill Processes with Kill Process) or Process Lasso (see: Process Lasso a Process Manager).

The configuration can be changed at anytime by launching the settings shortcut of the program. Auto Kill Any Process requires the Microsoft .net Framework 2.0. It should be compatible with most versions of Microsoft Windows and was tested on a system running Windows XP SP3. The download is available at the developer's website.

    I used to use a similiar program called gamebooster.

    It turns off all unnecessary services and kills background processes. It is handy in gaming as well as non-gaming situations.
