Closing non responding programs

  Legolas 18:01 04 Sep 2006

A while ago I seen a free piece of software that would close a non responding programme if trying to close it from Windows Task Manager doesnt work, I was wondering if anyone knows of this software and if so where I can download it

One trick I use is to go into the Processes tab on the Task Manager and click where it says CPU twice which will bring the process that uses the most resources up first. Click on that one or the process that's stopped responding and click End Process.

this usually happens if you have error reporting enabled which means not only is the program you are using struggling but windows cocks it up by trying to make a report if you find your CPU is flat out on these occasions. disable error reporting. your programmes will nearly always close straight away on end task then

Sorry about the link, I found this after I tried to download.


Unfortunately the very useful formerly-freeware utility EndItAll2 which I have praised and recommended for years is no longer available free of charge to end users. While there are a number of copies still floating around the web for those who look hard enough due to the intervention of the Ziff-Davis, Inc legal team and their false accusations to my ISP that I personally have been providing their copywrited program, links to the program can no longer be found on this web site. Those prepared to pay for a subscription can find it available at
