Kill a process that won’t die using Process Hacker


It is pretty easy to kill a process in Windows operating system’s task manager. But some processes cannot be killed using Windows task manager because it is a “protected process”.

Even using process explorer application, you might not able to kill the process. So recently I found that there is a very powerful tool that can solve the problem. Process Hacker, Process Hacker was started in 2008 as an open source alternative to programs such as Task Manager and Process Explorer. It is a portable application that doesn’t required any installation. It is safe to use, not a hacking tools, just a professional name.
