"Couldn't kill hung browser"

October 26, 2011  |  By hrwaller

 |  Version: Taskill 1.02

Pros

Kills anything so far that I could kill hitting the "X".

Cons

Loaded this just to kill Opera when it hung which is daily. Couldn't kill nor could it kill Firefox when it hung.

Summary

May be good for some users but my sole purpose was to kill hung browsers which it could not.

"Be a nifty program for an to expert programmer"

September 04, 2009  |  By Manhater33p

 |  Version: Taskill 1.02

Pros

Looks like a great program for an expert to use on what to kill for running processes but not a beginner.

Cons

If you have no clue on what processes to kill, your screwed. You fool around killing whatever processes and you kill the wrong one, your computer shuts down and restarts., I've done that couple times. ;p

"Does not work."

April 24, 2009  |  By KrzysztofWitta

 |  Version: Taskill 1.02

Pros

No need to install

Cons

Doesn't do what I expected it to do

Summary

Doesn't do what I expected it to do, it didn't manage to kill the processes the task manager wasn't able to kill.

"I wish every app was as simple as this one!"

January 23, 2007  |  By mauro_vos

 |  Version: Taskill 1.02

Pros

Kills on demand. Simple one window interface. No install required. Tiny download. Perfect if you hate waiting for an app, prog or process to shut down or if it doesn't respond anymore. Free software. An example of what apps should be like.

Cons

None. At all. I mean that.

"Great Product!"

November 07, 2006  |  By GerritGroot

 |  Version: Taskill 1.02

Pros

Simply kills executables without the agonizing necessity for PID numbers like they have on unix. Using it from the GUI may bring nothing new, but killing from the commandline prompt is very very useful when using it in codes. It's simple to use and small. Great program!

Cons

NO CONS, I was looking for this simple missing link without having to ask for PID numbers and so on, useful for automizing tasks.

"Does What It Says"

July 08, 2006  |  By prettiesformetoo

 |  Version: Taskill 1.02

Pros

Well it certainly does end processes quickly. That's its function so it works.

Cons

Well...I am not a programmer or analyzer...so it would be nice if the program could have TOLD ME which processes were safe to abort. I was picking and choosin and probably caused myself a few extra problem. Not the programs fault.
