Auto Kill Any Process
Auto Kill Any Process, the name says it all. This is a lightweight Windows freebie that does exactly what its name suggests: it can automatically terminate some processes based on user-defined parameters.
The program relies on what’s being called a “Hitlist”, which is actually a fully-configurable list of processes that are supposed to be killed by the app.
Setting up a new hitlist is as easy as pie because Auto Kill Any Process shows all running processes and lets you pick the items to be added to a specific list. What’s more, it shows process details, such as ID, name, user, title, path and responding status, while also enabling you to terminate a selected item instantly.
Hitlists can be saved on local disks, renamed, refreshed and used to perform either a manual batch process killing or an automatic one, according to a set of user-defined parameters.
For example, you can configure Auto Kill Any Process to automatically run at Windows boot and thus terminate startup items that may slow down the system.
On the other hand, this little piece of software can be used to close processes that stop responding on a regular basis, or simply close memory hogging apps to boost computer stability.
Auto Kill Any Process isn’t difficult to use once you figure out the purpose of each feature, but there’s no help manual to lend you a hand in this regard.
All things considered, Auto Kill Any Process can be quite a handy tool for many users out there, although it’s pretty clear that a more user-friendly approach is needed.
