If you had even bothered reading the entire thread you would have known how to use taskkill and how to call it.

Its really frustrating when members cant do a proper search for previous posts/threads. And please dont even say that you did a search and nothing came up because I just did a 15 second search and am looking at the thread I had posted in a few days back.

@ big poppa pump: nice to see that there are still some people who know to be polite. Furthermore i read this thread and didn't understand it. The lines i use, in runonceex all start with reg add %key% and so on. This doesn't look like the lines you posted in the thread. Therefor my question. Do i have to put the taskkil programm in the DAP dir and what commandline should i use that gives the right command, seeing my lines differ from yours.

Under WinXP Pro, two copies of taskkill.exe are found here:

- C:\WINDOWS\system32\

- C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\

taskkill.exe is installed by default with WinXP Pro.

However, as I read in some posts, taskkill.exe isn't part of WinXP Home. So, if you have WinXP Home, you need to get taskkill.exe, then put it here:

$OEM$\$$\System32\taskkill.exe

This is an example taken from a post:

REG ADD %KEY%\0070 /VE /D "IsoBuster" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\0070 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\IsoBuster.exe /VERYSILENT /SP-" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\0070 /V 2 /D "taskkill /F /IM isobuster.exe" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\0110 /VE /D "Getright Download Manager" /f

REG ADD %KEY%\0110 /V 1 /D "%systemdrive%\install\Getright.exe /s" /f

As you can see, you don't have to refer to the directory in which taskkill.exe resides, which is System32. Nor you need to put the taskkill program in DAP directory.

/F means force (i.e. to force termination of a process without confirmation)

/IM means image (i.e. name of process or program to terminate).

I hope this helps.
