Advanced Task Killer 1.0

A simple to use application that enables you to set a schedule, then automatically closes the selected programs when the time is up
Advanced Task Killer is a reliable software that enables you to set a schedule for automatic program or task shutdown. You may simply set a timer, then let the software close the selected programs when the time runs out. Advanced Task Killer also features an alarm function that you can use as a reminder.

Automatic program shutdown

Advanced Task Killer is a useful solution to automatic program shutdown, especially when you cannot supervise the computer yourself. Thus, you may simply create a schedule, by selecting the number of hours, minutes and seconds that you wish to pass before Advanced Task Killer closes the selected programs.

You may easily choose applications or other tasks that are triggered when opening an executable file. Advanced Task Killer requires that you select the .EXE file that corresponds to the desired program, from its location. The software allows you to add or remove program from the shutdown list, before you set the scheduler off.

Set alarms and reminders

Advanced Task Killer also allows you to set individual alarms, in order to remind yourself of upcoming tasks. You simply need to set the scheduler, for the number of hours, minutes and seconds, then type in a reminder message. The text is displayed on the screen when the alarm goes off.

The reminder function only works for tasks that are due in a short time, for instance in a few hours. The timer is limited to 24 hours, 60 minutes and 60 seconds. The alarm function must be reset every time it goes off, since it cannot be set as a recurring reminder. The software can run in the background, but while on the desktop it also works as a count down.

A reliable application for program shutdown

Advanced Task Killer is easy to use and comes in handy especially when you do not have the time to manually close certain programs. The software allows you to set a scheduler, then it can automatically close the selected programs, when the time is up. Once the timer is set, the software works as a count down application, since it displays the passing seconds, minutes and hours.
