On my Win Me PC, I used a little program called Kill Win to close down all non-essential applications prior to installing something new or using Flt Sim. It was/is very useful. I have tried it on the new PC (Win XP Home) but it shuts down everything necessitating a reboot; not quite what is intended. Does anyone know of (or can recommend) something similar and where to get it, or possibly tell me what to tweak in order to get Kill Win to work with XP. Thanks.
