ProcessKO 4.01 Pick
Software Product Description
ProcessKO is a small useful tool to quickly kill a running or hanging process / program. It is not uncommon among developers or program-testers that the programs do not function properly or that you can not even close the programs (using the Task Manager) usually its always the same candidates.
Creating "Dearest-KO's" for fast killing processes or programs!
One knows this problem, especially as developers / beta tester: When a program freezes,than you call the task manager CTRL+ALT+DEL , and find that frozen program then you have to find and select the option "End Process", and finally you have to confirm the message, "Are you sure you want to terminate the process" with "yes". One can save many hand moves and also time !
Now it's easier then ever!... With ProcessKO it goes faster and the program can also be restarts from there. ProcessKO does not have to be installed and can be executed easily from the desktop. It's one small / portable utility for Windows PC-s and is a small usb-stick friend :)
"Kills them all"
Review Date: 2015-02-15
Pros: Small, light, and portable. Killed every process I threw at it. I froze Firefox on purpose by opening a whole bunch of videos, browser games, etc., I killed the plugin-container, then firefox.exe and firefox closed instantly.
Cons: This is powerful, I didn't try disabling my anti-virus or any system processes. If you disable the wrong process you might inadvertently cause a problem, like no sound or no anti-virus protection, for instance. Also, there is a checkbox you must click to acknowledge you are an "expert" before the program will work properly. This is at the bottom in a place that is not intuitive to look at, I actually opened the Instant KO menu at the top first, which covered part of the disclaimer and I didn't realize at first the instant K.O. wouldn't work without checking the box. A message comes up "Please confirm the expert clause" with an OK and Cancel prompt, intuitively a person might believe that clicking OK would mean you agree.
Other Thoughts: This program is great, it works and works well. The GUI is a little dated but is functional. I have this program in my computer toolkit and it is invaluable.
